comes from the world of fantasy
and fairy tales. Whether fairy stor-
ies are learned from books, par-

teachers, it is hard to imagine a
person whom they have passed by,

The Tragedy of Iraq
The Jewish community of Iraq,
now terrorized by hangings, is the
oldest Jewish- community in the
world outside of Palestine with a
history of more than 2,500 years.
In 1945, some 90,000 of Iraq's
140,000 Jews lived in Baghdad,
comprising 25 per cent of that
city's population. At that time
Baghdad had over 50 Jewish
schools and 26 synagogues. Now,
all are closed and only a handful
of Jews remain.
