Last Days in Babylon: The Story of the Jews of Baghdad
Marina Benjamin (au)
In 2004, Benjamin visited Baghdad searching for her family’s history among the remains of its once vital Jewish community, the roots of which predate the birth of Islam by a thousand years. When Iraq gained independence in 1932, Jews were the largest and most prosperous ethnic group in Baghdad. Just 20 years later, its members were expelled from the country by a hostile Iraqi gov’t. Benjamin’s grandmother, born in 1905, lived through it all, and her hair-raising escape was a tragic exodus from her homeland. “This is an adventure story, a riveting history and a timely reminder that behind today’s headlines are real people whose lives are caught -- too often tragically -- in the crossfire of misunderstanding, age-old prejudice and geopolitical ambition.”
