Iraqi Jewish Documents Remain In Limbo

An article in the Los Angeles Times on October 31, 2010 addresses the a collection of antique torahs and rare Jewish books in Iraq that were brought to the US in 2003 for preservation and now Iraq is demanding their return to be placed in their National Library. They were found floating in water and the National Archives (USA) personnel took steps to stop the mold and
preserve them. See:
