The Full Story of the Iraqi Jewish Archive
Here is the full story of the Iraqi Jewish Archive. It's clear that many of the objects are of a personal nature and not as claimed by some ardent repatriationists merely government documents about Jews. All documents of a personal, religious or community nature should go back to their true owners or to the Iraqi Jewish Community in exile. Repatriationist principles should not apply where the nation state stole the artifacts in question as part of ethnic cleansing. It should be simple as that.
