>> Interesting that his name struck you as Turkish <<

I was under the impression, as the credits were rolling past, that the name I saw (apparently his) had some additional diacritical marks where I would have expected them in Turkish. (This is entirely a visual inference; I have been in areas that have significant Turkish presence and signage, and like to get an idea of what various languages look like so I can better identify locales I see, but I have never been to, or even very near, Turkey.)

>> How was he made out to be Turkish in the movie? <<

The first scene I saw him in was an establishing scene in an Ottoman Empire scene (cued by red crescent flag; also, I believe there was a caption) showing a camp containing Germans. So I expected him to be Turkish. I guess that inference wasn't valid.

>> I would like to see this, if you have links. <<

Unfortunately, this was an extended verbal discussion at a weekly science fiction club meeting, about what the film got right and wrong. So I can't help you there.

Thanks for engaging on this!
