Halet Çambel was born in Berlin (1916). Her father, Hasan Cemil Çambel, was closely associated with Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of the Turkish Republic. Her mother, Remziye Hanim, was the daughter of the Turkish ambassador to Germany. She received undergraduate training in archaeology at the Sorbonne University in Paris and received a doctorate in 1940 at the University of Istanbul.
She competed in the women’s individual foil event at the 1936 Summer Olympics. Çambel was the first Muslim woman to compete in the Olympics. Although invited by a “female German official” to meet Hitler, Çambel refused on political grounds.
On returning to Istanbul after the Olympics, she began her association with Nail Çakırhan. They were married for 70 years until his death in October 2008.
