Return the "Iraqi Jewish Archive" to its legal inheritors!

In September 2018 the so-called "Iraqi Jewish Archive" will be transferred by the US to Iraqi government. We cannot allow this unjustice to happen! The archive is a collection of unique documents, books and cultural artifacts, including personal belonging, that was robbed from the Iraqi Jewish community by Iraqi secret service.

This unique historic collection should remain in Jewish hands for open scientific research and proper maintenance, to be preserved and remain available for future generations. If sent to Iraq, it may vanish again and we be lost forever.

Iraqi Jewish community was the oldest Jewish exile in our national history, and produced invaluable treasures Judaism, science, philosophy and other fields. This archive should belong to successors of the Iraqi Jews, and become available to them, the entire Jewish people and international community.

We ask the Israeli Government to work together with the US leadership to find the solution for this unique historical treasure. We can't take chances and allow it disappear again! Jewish national organizations should take care of it as soon as possible and ensure both physical and spiritual exposure of this archive to all.
