A Nostalgic Trip into the History of the Jews of Iraq presents a history of the oldest Jewish community in the world. Translated from the work of Y.R. Ghanimah, the first Assyrian Christian to write a book on this subject and an acclaimed Christian who dedicated his life to serve the public, it contains facts and stories about the Iraqi Jewish Community from the Garden of Eden through 1924. The author also discusses the Assyrian, Jewish, and Christian Persecutions in Iraqi history. The translator adds a depiction of the modern history of the Jews in Iraq, exposing the rise of anti-Semitism there during this century and completing a thorough history of the Jewish people in Iraq.

...[a] loving tribute to a community that lived in Mesopotamia from the first exile, in 587 BCE, until total expulsion in the wake of Israel's statehood. * The Jewish Chronicle, UK *
The book is unique among Arab language publications in its positive attitude to indigenous Jews, and it provides interesting data for the early twentieth century. * Religious Studies Review *
