FILE - In this Sept. 3, 2000 file photo, relatives of the Struma victims mourn during a memorial service off the coast of Istanbul, Turkey,  At a time when Turkey welcomes Syrians fleeing violence, the anniversary Friday of the deaths of more than 750 Jewish refugees whose boat was abandoned by Turkish officials in World War II was a reminder of the tension between pragmatic and humanitarian impulses. The 1942 fate of the SS Struma, a ship trying to carry the refugees from Romania to Palestine, is a stain on Turkey's upbeat narrative of the Jewish experience in the mostly Muslim country.
