The Silent Minority in Turkey: Turkish Jews

The present book deals with the history of Turkish Jewry during the last century or so, beginning from the final years of the Ottoman Empire and continuing on through the early years of the Turkish Republic until today. The common theme of the various articles included in this volume is the pressures, problems and different instances and periods of discrimination and anti-Semitism that the small Jewish community of Turkey has encountered over the roughly 85-year history of the Turkish Republic. This collection of articles will be of use to the casual reader, as well as to scholars and students interested in the history of Turkish Jews.
