Escape from Baghdad and the Return

By: Saul Silas Fathi

The book chronicles a prominent Iraqi Jewish family’s escape from persecution through the journey of one family member: A 10-years old boy who witnesses public hangings and the 1941 Krystalnacht (Farhood) in Baghdad. After a harrowing escape from Iraq through Iran, this boy begins a life-long search for meaning and his place in the world. His journey takes him to the newly-formed State of Israel, then to Brazil and finally to the United States. He joins the United States Army and serves in Korea and returns to a fascinating career in three Fortune-500 companies. Following September 11, 2001, he volunteers to work for the F.B.I.

Genre: Youth and adult, anyone interested in the history of the Middle-East, the Jewish people, and Sephardic life under Islam.

A note from the author: My book speaks to youth and adult readers alike about Jewish persecution in Arab countries, Jewish history, and escape from persecution in Iraq in the time of Hitler as experienced by the Fathi family. Readers will also learn fascinating facts about the history of the Middle-East, life under Islam, Baghdad and how anti-Semitism in these countries led to public hangings.
