Hasan Tahsin was the code name of Osman Nevres (1888 – 15 May, 1919), an Ottoman born Turkish[1][2][3][4] nationalist[5][6] and journalist. Being a member of the Ottoman Special Organization, he unsuccessfully tried to assassinate the Buxton Brothers: Noel Noel-Buxton, 1st Baron Noel-Buxton and Charles Roden Buxton in Romania during World War I.[7]

He is the national symbol of Turk's resistance to enemy forces. He is said to have been the first to open fire on the Greek soldiers that landed at Smyrna (present day Izmir) on May 15, 1919[8] in the opening act of the Greek occupation of more than three years that extended over a large part of western Anatolia, as well as of the Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922).He was one of those journalists who talked about women's rights in Ottoman. At the time of his death he was publishing and writing for the newspaper "Hukuk-u Beşer" (Ottoman Turkish for "Human Rights").[9]
