University of Istamboul Retires Abraham Galante

Prof. Abraham Galante has been retired from the University of Istamboul among other professors who have been retired as a result of radical reforms introduced in the university. The retirement of Prof. Galante aroused considerable attention in Jewish circles, as he is one of the best scholars, author of many historical works and is a member of the Portuguese Academy of Science. It is believed that the retirement of Prof. Galante is not prompted by any anti-Semitic considerations in view of the fact that the university senate is now seriously considering the appointment of a number of Jewish professors from Germany.
