Memories of Eden - A Journey through Jewish Baghdad 1912-1941

This book is an exciting mix of memoirs and history recounting the days of the Jewish community of old Baghdad. Although the theme originally didn't capture my attention, once I started to read it and understand how the influences of the thirty years or so between 1912 - 1941 affects the drama in the middle east today I was captivated. The photo gallery is priceless. I would love to see this on Oprah's book list as it's a must read to understand our world today.
