Great Escapes - An evening of
Featuring film premiere of Escape
from Baghdad: Moshe Kahtan’s story
Moshe Kahtan, scion of an old and prominent Baghdad family, was
the last Iraqi Jew to escape the country before the 1967 Six-Day
Having left Iraq in the 1950s to study in London, Moshe had to
make the most difficult decision of his life and went back to Baghdad
in 1965, knowing full well that as a Jew, he would be prevented
from leaving again.
In this film, made by his son David, Moshe tells us of his “two
years of hell” in the city of his birth, and gives a nail-biting
account of his near-capture by the Iraqi navy. Moshe will be on
hand to answer questions.
If you have a dramatic story to tell of how you escaped from
an Arab country or Iran please come and share it with us.
