- The Jews of Iraq – a dynamic community in the Middle Eastern arena. Prof. Esther Meir-Glitzenstein
- “Remember Baghdad” (film) – Five families from the Jewish community look back on a scarcely imaginable time in Baghdad – Iraq was booming, it was pleasure-seeking, and there was inter-communal trust. Today, after decades of war and instability, Iraq is a very different place. In spite of the danger, North Londoner Edwin Shuker decides to return to the country he loved. He wants to buy a house in Iraq, thus planting a seed for the future.
Film by Fiona Murphy. After the film, a meeting with Edwin Shuker.
