On May 11, the Museum of Biblical Arts opens a new exhibition, Discovery and Recovery: Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage.

The exhibit, sponsored by the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, details the dramatic recovery of historic materials relating to the Jewish community in Iraq from a flooded basement in Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters, and the National Archives and Records Administration’s ongoing work in support of U.S. government efforts to preserve these materials.

Running through September 3, 2018, the Discovery and Recovery exhibit, in both English and Arabic, features 22 recovered original items and a behind the scenes video of the fascinating yet painstaking preservation process.

On May 6, 2003, just days after Coalition forces took over Baghdad, American soldiers found thousands of books and documents relating to the Jewish community of Iraq. Submerged in four feet of water, these materials belonged to synagogues and Jewish organizations in Baghdad.
