- What’s On
The sad news of Osman Streater’s death on November 22, 2013 after a valiant fight against cancer was announced in The Times last week. Osman Streater most recently launched the magazine Turkey in Europe in 2009 supporting Turkey’s accession into the EU. He was also editor of the English section of the London-based bilingual weekly The Turkish Times.
Osman Streater recounts a remarkable piece of unrecorded history: the wartime friendship between the future Pope John XXIII and his great-uncle Numan Menemencioğlu, Turkey’s Foreign Minister from 1942 to 1944. The most important area of their joint work is one that is not mentioned in histories official or unofficial: they saved about 100,000 Jews from the Nazis
Patriot, poet, playwright, journalist, historian, exile, prisoner, four times provincial governor and founder of the movement which led to the Young Turks… the life of Namık Kemal was all action and incident. Osman Streater assesses his forebear’s pivotal role in the development of modern Turkey
