DW documentary: Jewish life in Baghdad until the 1950s

Until the 1950s, Baghdad’s vibrant Jewish community played a large role in the cultural and social life of the city. But then anti-Semitic violence forced almost all Jews to flee Iraq. To date little has been told about Jewish life in Baghdad. This very personal documentary follows the family history of a Jewish Iraqi who is now returning to buy a house in Iraq.
