Overview

The Nazis needed oil. The Arabs wanted the Jews and British out of Palestine and Iraq. The Mufti of Jerusalem forged a far-ranging alliance with Hitler resulting in the June 1941 Farhud, a Nazi-style pogrom in Baghdad that set the stage for the devastation and expulsion of the Iraqi Jews and ultimately almost a million Jews across the Arab world. The Farhud was the beginning of what became a broad Nazi-Arab alliance in the Holocaust.

Editorial Reviews

FOX News - Walid Phares
MONUMENTAL AND EXHAUSTIVELY DOCUMENTED. Monumental in scope, Edwin Black’s new book The Farhud sheds light on the under-researched, 14-century-long confrontation between the Caliphate and the Jewish communities, and offers new exhaustively documented details of exactly how the Pan-Arabist and Jihadist movement of the Levant, led by the Mufti of Jerusalem, al-Husseini, partnered with the Nazis during the darkest days of the Holocaust.
co-editor of Al-Farhud: the 1941 Pogrom in Iraq and Israel Prize Laureate, Hebrew University of Jerusalem & Chairman Aca - Shmuel Moreh
MASSIVE, TREMENDOUS, CAPTIVATING. A massive undertaking, Edwin Black has written in a captivating style a tremendous volume, with insight, clear presentation, and objective research, that will change the understanding of the Mideast story and the Arab-Israeli relationship, for generations and generations to come.
executive vice chairman Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations - Malcolm Hoenlein
PROFOUND. Following the precedent set by his earlier works on vital issues, Edwin Black has produced another profound, insightful work of historic and contemporary significance. In The Farhud, Black presents well-documented truths about Arab-Nazi collaboration during the Holocaust. It will shed new light on the discussion of the Middle East and the Arab-Israeli conflict. This book fills a long-standing gap in our understanding of the terrible events of 70 years ago and their continuing impact.
Canadian Jewish News - Sheldon Kirshner
MASSIVE. AN IMPORTANT STORY. Black moves massive mounds of material ... to tell his important story ... you’ll be amply rewarded ... a worthy addition to the historiography of the modern Middle East.
Jerusalem Post - Isi Leibler
SUPERB ANALYSIS. Edwin Black's latest book, The Farhud, provides a superb analysis of the origins of Islamic-Fascism and is a must read for those seeking to understand the nature of Israel’s current confrontation with Muslim extremism."
