A Scapegoat For All Seasons: The Donmes or Crypto – Jews of Turkey

The book is a study of the demonization of the Doenmes (Crypto-Jews, whose ancestors were followers of the so-called messiah Sabbatai Tsvi), in today’s Turkish society and Turkish media. It studies why antisemitic books declaring that “the Turkish Republic is governed by Crypto-Jews” became best-sellers in Turkey and how this mentality had been widely disseminated in Turkey.
