News at Eleven: [Habib Gerez] neglects to mention

that he had worked for two Turkish-Jewish newspapers, Haftanın Sesi, of which he was a co-founder in 1956, and later, Şalom, for which he wrote poems as recently as 1997. Fellow former Şalom writer Yakup Almelek says that the bulk of Gerez's monetary success actually came from his handsome salary at Şalom, and not from selling paintings, which is not Istanbul's most lucrative industry.
