In Turkey, people spoke French because L'Alliance Israélite Universelle
(Universal Jewish Alliance) created schools in 1873 in Salonica and students
learned French there. Only the very poor people didn't go to these schools
and spoke only ladino. I suppose it was the same in Istanbul and Canetti is
a name >from Istanbul rather than Salonica.
