Modernization of Turkey's Architecture and Radiology by Austrian Refugees 1933-1945 - Because of restrictive immigration laws and widespread anti-Semitic hiring practices at U.S. and Canadian universities, Turkey saved a large percentage of those fired from their academic posts by the Nazis in Germany and later in Austria. Refugees from Austria transformed and modernized the teaching and practice of urban architecture and radiology in Turkey and contributed to introducing political economy into university curricula there, yet this significant chapter of twentieth-century history is an Anglophone historian's blind spot. This paper discusses that episode, its legacy, and perceptions thereof in Turkey today. (Article, 2008) [University of Maryland, College Park]
