    Yes Turkey did allow a selected number of Geraman Jews with high education to come to Turkey. They established many of the science faculties at the universities. Among them doctor Nielsen was one that I came to know. Diplonats like Selahattin Ulkumen saved a few dozens Jews from Rhodes to flee. But on the other hand Turkey did not give refuge to the common Jews. The fate of the ship Struma tells it all. Additionally in 1941 Varlik Vergisi law was passed which gave the government the right to confiscate all the wealth from theJews (including a big building in Istaenbul Bankalar caddesi from my family) and sending Jews to labor camps at Askale. Younger Jews also were sent to a labor camp at Afyon under the guise of 20th draft military service. So if you are really honest you have to look at the two sides of the events.
