Lily Shor: Happy Childhood in Difficult Times: Baghdad between 1951 and 1971
In this webinar series, Middle Eastern Judaism and Islam, Dr Merav Rosenfeld-Hadad will interview four fascinating and successful Middle Eastern women who will share their views on diplomacy and journalism, family and social life, food and the arts, and cross denominational relationships.
In this second episode, Lily Shor, the Director of External Relations and Events at the Babylonian Jewry Heritage Center, will reflect on her happy childhood in difficult times between 1951 and 1971.
Lily Shor was born in Baghdad and lived there until the age of fourteen. In 1971, she fled Iraq with her family to Israel, as life in Baghdad became dangerous for the Jews after the Six Day War and the constant persecutions they went through.
In her interview, Lily will share with us her experience in the unstable country yet, still enjoying childhood among the small and vibrant Jewish community. Lily is the Director of External Relations and Events at the Babylonian Jewry Heritage Center, Or Yehuda, Israel.
