(Berlin, 30.09.2012 - 04.10.2012) Join me please for a visit to the New Synagogue Berlin - Centrum Judaicum and its exhibition "The Yellow Ticket. Taffic in Girls 1860-1930": The sex trade in Constantinople is thriving at the end of the 19th century. Many women and girls from the Russian Empire and Austria-Hungary work in the brothels of this million-strong city on the Bosphorus. They are brought to Turkey via Galati or the Black Sea port of Odessa and are sometimes resold in the Middle and Far East. This is presumambly how Galicia-born (Probuzna, 1872) Gusta Farer reached Constantinople.
