Don't Let the Iraqi-Jewish Archive Go Back to Iraq!
Jewish groups have sponsored this petition asking the US Government not to send the Iraqi-Jewish archive back to an uncertain future in Iraq. This is part of a larger effort in Congress to pressure the State Department and the Obama Administration to do the right thing and make sure the archive is turned over to Iraqi-Jewish representatives. These groups have even developed this platform to help deported Jews make a claim to their own heritage. A late start but an effort anyone who really cares about preserving the history of the Iraqi-Jewish community should support.
