From Babylonia to America - An Iraqi Jewish Immigration Journey

Sunday, December 8, 2019

Velda & David Shaby, siblings, were brought up in Iran after the family's escape from Iraq. The year was 1950 and the Iraqi government had just announced a denaturalization law which gave Jews a one-year window in which to leave the country on the condition they relinquish their citizenship, property, and wealth. 130,000 Jews fled, including the Shaby Family. David is an Andover resident. Come to hear the family's immigration journey.
