Iraq’s Last Jews: book launch


This important book – one of the most comprehensive to-date - tells the story of the last generation of Iraqi Jews, collecting the oral histories of wealthy businessmen, communists, popular musicians and reformist writers, Iraqi patriots and early Zionists.

A total of 64 Iraqis living in the US, Canada, the UK and Israel were interviewed. Two of the UK interviewees, Aida Zelouf and Dia Kashi, whose stories were selected for the book, will attend the launch.

Copies of Iraq’s Last JewsStories of daily life, upheaval and escape from modern Babylon [edited by Tamar Morad, Dennis Shasha and Robert Shasha (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008)] will be on sale at a generous discount.
