Who was the unsung Turkish hero of the second world war? Who shined as a brilliant beacon of humanism in the howling blackness of humanity’s darkest night? Who, when nearly everyone in France was cowering in the shadow of the iron might of the German war machine, stood up for truth and dignity? This is the Ambassador, and this is his story. This historical account is a novelization of how Behic Erkin, the Turkish ambassador to France during WWII, was able to through his valiant and dangerous work, save many hundreds of Jews from the Holocaust. Grounded in historical fact and guided by the figure’s personal memoirs, author Emir Kıvırcık is freeing a story that is flipping over the table on prejudices about how muslim-jewish relations have to be. With a personal endorsement by Israeli President Shimon Peres, this book illuminates a moment in the 20th century that has resounding implications for the conflicts that the world faces here in the 21st century.
