Remember Baghdad is the untold story of Iraq, an unmissable insight into how the country developed through the eyes of the Jews, Iraq’s first wave of refugees.
From picnics on the Tigris and royal balls, to hangings, imprisonment, and escape. After 2,600 years living peacefully in the area, the community vanishes in just one generation.
With vivid testimony, home movies, and news archive, we follow the lives of four Jewish families trying to make sense of turbulent times, as one man goes back to buy a house in Iraq and reestablish the Iraqi Jewish community.
