Kuzguncuk'un, tarihsel olarak farklı dinlere mensup insanların birlikte yaşadığı, nostaljik mahalle kültürünün hâlâ yaşanabildiği hoşgörülü bir semt olduğu düşünülür. Halbuki burada bir zamanlar yaşamış olan Rum, Ermeni ve Yahudi nüfus yirminci yüzyılın ortalarında semtlerinden sürüldü; arkalarında derin izler bırakarak...

I should admit I only read 5 chapters of this, but I really liked what I read. Great fieldwork by the author interviewing residents of the area, and excellent evocation of the problems of "Pacts of Silence" that are necessary to the existence of many European societies. Nostalgia for a past that never existed to escape the trauma of a near-present no one wants to acknowledge.

kitap, kollektif hafızaya neredeyse psikanalitik bir yaklaşımla girişilen doktora sonrası bir araştırmanın ürünü. pek çok perspektiften bakabilmesi ile dinsel, etnik, kültürel farklılıkların yorumlanabilmesi açısından değerli idi. azınlıklar ülkede neden azalır, devletin bu konudaki dolaylı yönlendirmeleri nasıl olur'a da cevap vermiş arada. bu kitap sayesinde, peyzajlara bakarken temsilinin dışında gizlenen/bastırılan birşeyler olabileceği, aklımın bir köşesinde olacaktır.

How places perpetuate themselves through nostalgia and memory. This was really fascinating and for how Istanbul-centric it is, it's really applicable to a lot of non-Istanbul places as well.

Provides a really interesting background of an Istanbul neighborhood, I think it is definitely useful to examine the neighborhood as a microcosm of minority issues in Turkey (specifically Greeks and Jews). I liked this book, just found it a bit repetitive at times. Works like this are really important, especially as minority populations dwindle and emigrate. It's too bad that such studies are lacking on other cities in Turkey.
