Edwin Black looks at “The Farhud,” a Nazi-Arab attempt to completely exterminate the Jews of Baghdad June 1-2, 1941. He examines the alliance between the mufti of Jerusalem - Haj Amin al-Husseini - and Adolf Hitler. The mufti took up residence in Baghdad after fleeing Palestine in 1936. In Arabic, Farhud means “violent dispossession.” After his presentation Mr. Black responded to questions from members of the audience.

Mr. Black spoke at the Park East Synagogue in New York City at an event sponsored by NAHOS--National Association of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors and Park East Synagogue and co-sponsored by Scholars for Peace in the Middle East; the State of California Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, Human Rights and Tolerance; the Binghamton Social Justice Fund; History Network News; the Institute for Religion and Public Policy; Jewish Virtual Library; The Auto Channel; Spero Forum; and The Cutting Edge News. close
