WHO OWNS JEWISH HERITAGE IN THE MIDDLE EAST?

An illustrated talk by Lyn Julius

With the exodus of 99 percent of the Middle East’s Jewish population, the thorny question remains: what happens to the communal property they left
behind? Community registers in Egypt. Torah scrolls in Yemen. The tug-of-war over the Iraqi-Jewish archive, now in the US but claimed by Iraq. Who owns the heritage
of now-defunct Jewish communities in Arab countries? Is it the exiled Jews? Or is it part of a country’s national heritage?

Lyn Julius is the founder of HARIF, the UK Association of Jews from the Middle
East and North Africa and the author of UPROOTED: How 3,000 years of Jewish
Civilisation in the Arab world vanished overnight’ (Vallentine Mitchell, 2018)
