Shadow in Baghdad

On November 30th the State of Israel is set to commemorate the story of the one million Jewish refugees from Arab countries. This day recognizes the plight of people who were forced to flee from their homes and leave the countries where they had lived for millennia, solely because of their Jewish identity. ​

Linda (Abdul Aziz) Menuchin tells the story of her family in the film “Shadow in Baghdad,” specifically of her father who was ‘disappeared’ by the authorities in Iraq after many Jews managed to escape during the 1950’s.
