This book focuses on the recruitment of German Jewish scholars and academicians by the Turkish Republic shortly after Hitler came to power, and the fate of Jews of Turkish origin in German-controlled France during WWII. It contrasts the evidence and facts from a wealth of newly disclosed documents to provide a revised account of Turkey’s role in these dark and catastrophic years.
