    This should have said that Nov 30,1947 was the day when persecution of the Jews increased. My father was from Baghdad, and there was definitely persecution well before then, it was just more intense after.
    My wife and I visited Morocco in April and there is a restored old synagogue in the Fes Mellah, and the Moroccans, at least to your face, speak with respect about the Jewish population that had been there. The only falsehood that was obvious was the claim that all the Jews chose to leave on the urging of the zionists from Israel.
    Sadly much of the details of my family’s life in Baghdad is being lost, as the generation that lived there dies off.
