In 1950 Baghdad was 40% Jewish. Today a handful of Jews remain. Uncover the shocking facts about the ethnic cleansing of Iraq’s Jews and what it means for peace in the Middle East today.
Why has the world been silent about this atrocity? What is the Islamic view of Jewish citizens? The wretched history of Jews in Arab countries makes a strong case for Israel.
Presented by Carole Basri, an Jewish American filmmaker and lawyer of Iraqi Jewish descent. Most of her productions focus on the History of the Jews in Iraq as she documents her ancestral roots and discusses Jewish traditions in Iraq.
She gave the talk at the National Jewish Retreat of the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI).
