Edwin Black on The Farhud for Congregation Kol Ami

Fri, 05/26/2023 - 12:30 PM–1:30 PM

On this day—on Shavuot—we remember the horrific Arab-Nazi pogrom inflicted on the Jewish citizens of Baghdad, June 1–2, 1941: “The Farhud.” This violent dispossession was the beginning of the Nazi-style process of exclusion and dispossession that would conclude with the public expulsion of Iraqi Jews and the end of the 2,700-year-old Iraqi Jewish community.

Join Edwin Black, author of The Farhud and originator of International Farhud Day, as he asks: can it happen again?
