After 2,600 years of living peacefully in Iraq, in one generation the Jewish community vanishes. With vivid testimony, home movies and news archive, as well as footage from Iraq today, we follow the lives of four families trying to make sense of turbulent times, and one man goes back to buy a house in Iraq. It’s his dream to re-establish a Jewish presence in the land of his forefathers.
Remember Baghdad is history made personal, revealing the little-known but fascinating back story of how the disintegration began in a country that has exploded into our lives today.
