Turkey Ministry Recommends Jewish Artist for Eurovision, HT Says

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry recommended a Jewish Turk represent the country at the Eurovision song contest, Haberturk newspaper reported, without saying how it got the information.

The ministry sent a letter to state television channel TRT on Jan. 3 recommending that pop singer Can Bonomo represent Turkey at the yearly event, Haberturk reported. The move was intended as an opening to Jews amid the worst period in Turkish-Israeli relations in the countries’ histories, the Istanbul-based newspaper said. Bonomo was announced as Turkey’s representative for the contest by TRT on Jan. 6, it said.

Turkey will also be the first Muslim country to air a documentary about the Holocaust as part of the same cultural opening toward Jews, Haberturk reported. French director Claude Lanzmann’s 9.5-hour documentary “Shoah” began airing with Turkish subtitles on TRT on Jan. 26 and will continue in episodes to be aired each Thursday, it said.
