Baghdad & Beyond: Iraqi Jewish History in the 20th Century – 80th Anniversary of the Farhud
Hosted By: SHINDC
What do you know about Iraqi Jews? Maybe you enjoy eating amba and sabih? Perhaps you have heard of the tragedy of the Farhud? Or watched the film adaption of Eli Amir’s book Dove Flyer? This talk will bring all of these facets of the Iraqi Jewish experience together through an exploration of the cosmopolitan culture of the modern Baghdadi Jew, Baghdadi Jewish networks, the vibrant culture of the Middle East in the first half of the 20th century and the rise of Arab nationalism.
