In 1933, Albert Einstein petitioned Turkish President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk to allow “forty professors and doctors from Germany” to immigrate to Turkey, amid increasing hostilities in their own country. “These scientists are willing to work for a year without any remuneration,” Einstein assured Ataturk.
