schema:description"In 1933 when Germany under Hitler dismissed all academics with Jewish ancestry and anti-Nazi leanings, Turkey, a young republic, was in the midst of a major modernization program, led by Ataturk, its founding father. Beginning that very year, its government invited a large number of them to take prestigious positions in its few existing colleges and other state establishments, in particular help with reforming its higher education and other public institutions. Continued through WWII, this effort not only saved the lives of many German Jewish professors and their knowledge and art but also benefited the host country immensely. This book brings to light the story of these émigré professors and tells about their contributions to science, medicine, engineering, art, literature, and music in Turkey."
