Salim Fattal: Iraqi Jewry and the ‘Farhoud’ pogrom of 1941

Following the showing of the first part of a three-part documentary he made for Israel Television on the Jews of Iraq, broadcaster and author Salim Fattal will discuss some key issues: what caused the pogrom of 1941? How did Iraq fall victim to a Nazi regime? Why did young Jews join the communist underground? Why did the community decide to leave?
