This site is dedicated to the Jews of Iraq who left Baghdad during the 1960's and 1970's.
We are dispersed all over the world: Israel, UK, USA, Canada, Holland, Australia, ...
This is the place to share memories and stories and to look for lost friends.
Tell us about what you've been doing during the past 40 years. Send us pictures.
We hope you'll make this site your home, the meeting place for all of us.
We thank everyone who sent us material and helped this site grow into what it is today.
