The Farhud In Baghdad, June 1-2, 1941

The story of the Baghdad mass-killingsof Jews is told here.

The story of how Jewish volunteers, including David Raziel, Jabotinsky’s likely successor, came to Iraq and took on the most dangerous missions the British could give them, and managed to prevent the oilfields from falling into enemy hands — Raziel was killed in the mission — still needs to be told, as do many other such acts by Jewish volunteers, all over the Middle East, to whom the British entrusted such tasks but, after the war, never mentioned what had been done, and by whom.
