Iraqi Jew artifacts on display in the US

Thousands of relics recovered and restored in the US after second Gulf War will be returned to Iraq.

    Iraqi Jews were pressured into leaving their home for Israel and other countries in the mid-20th century by a government that did not want them. 

    Now, a US-led effort is helping to save their cultural and religious history, bringing new attention to the community.
