Photographer's Note

Wallarts (graffitis) can be quite artisanal.
Here this one -a portrait of Albert Einstein- on the wall of a shop in Kadikoy (on the Asian part of the city) is a perfect evidence for this fact.
I don't know who has made it, but the result is top of the top.

By the way Albert Einstein helped about 3000 German Professors with Jewish origins and sent out from the German Universities (due to their heritages) during IInd Reich under Adolf Hitlers regime, to find a new job in Turkeys Universities.

This period -been titled as University Reform 1933- is a great and important period in the history of Turkey and another perfect evidence of the intelligence of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkish Republik.
Many of those German academicians continued to stay in Turkey even after the WW II and some of them are burried in İslamic cemeteries of Istanbul and Ankara.
