Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent, for it brings out elements about the Balkan and the European history. Especially when red between the lines. It also shows the huge differences between various Jewish groups and cults and the role some of them played in the formation of the modern Turkish state.

Some openly Turkophile authors though (Stanford Shaw) couldn't help from defaming the Greeks as anti-semetic, cunningly hiding the fact that several Christian bishops saved the Jewish population giving them even false christian ID's and that many Greeks hid Jews in their homes, while the person that handed the list of Jews of Thessalonica to the nazis was the Austrian Rabbi Koretz. Shaw openly takes the side of the Turkish state, a state which chose to remain "neutral" so that it wouldn't break its traditional friendship with the Germans. A friendship that monitored several genocides (Greek, Armenian etc) the existence of of which Mr Shaw denies.
