JW3 commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Farhud

1 June 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Wednesday 1 June. 1 pm – 3 pm.

Seventy-five years exactly since the outbreak of the Farhud pogrom in Iraq, join us for an afternoon of memories, films and discussion. The Farhud (Arabic for ‘forced dispossession’) was a pogrom incited by pro-Nazi Arab nationalists during Shavuot in Baghdad, 1-2 June 1941, when many Jews were murdered and injured, and Jewish homes looted and destroyed.
