65th Anniversary of the Baghdad anti-Jewish Pogrom


1 June 2006
65th Anniversary of the Baghdad anti-Jewish Pogrom

65 years ago on this day, Iraqi Arabs launched a Nazi-inspired two-day pogrom, the Farhud, which would anticipate the end of some 2,600 years of Jewish life in Iraq. In remembrance of this tragic event, Judeoscope presents “The forgotten Holocaust Pogrom” a short film produced by the International Sephardic Leadership Council documenting the Farhud and its exclusion from Holocaust scholarship and commemoration, as well as other relevant online articles and resources.

The Sephardic Holocaust Project
Sephardic Holocaust Project grew out of an expansion of the earlier Farhud Recognition Project (FRP). The FRP was developed because while the entire world knew about the affects of the Holocaust in Central Europe, few knew it had extended outside of Europe. As an example of this, while most have heard of Kristallnacht, few had heard of the Farhud, where Arabs trained by the Nazis in Baghdad, killed, maimed and committed numerous atrocities against the Jewish population on the two days on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot in 1941. When we telephoned Holocaust centers around the country to initially discuss the Farhud, very few even had heard of it.
