It was 8th November 1877. Her husband was away because he was fighting on the front line. She had two little children, but she said, "They can grow up without their mother, but not without their motherland." She ran to Fort Aziziye with the people of Erzurum. They didn't feel afraid. They fought heroically and then the Russian soldiers ran away. She was one of the veterans.

She had four sons and two daughters. However, two of her sons died during the First World War. When a reporter interviewed her in 1937, everybody learned her story and after that, the Turkish people never forgot her. She got the title of the Granny of the 3rd Army in 1952.
