used to receive The Scribe regularly. I received a postcard
that it has gone online. Please keep me informed of future issues.
I have been coming
to London every couple of years, working for Chemical Abstracts
Service. I have been visiting Samir and Gracy Tricot and Latif
and Samira Balass. I love seeing my classmates from Frank
Iny, Sabah Gabbay, Emil Cohen, Eli Timman, etc.
My son, David
Bernstein, is the Director of the American Jewish Committee
in Washington DC. He came across this site of Jews from Baghdad
1960-1970 vintage. I graduated from Baghdad University, Kuliat
Al-Aloom in chemistry. I was first in my class. It was mighty
hard to get a visa to the U.S., but somehow I was very lucky.
My brother had graduated from Al-Hikma Univ, so he was established
here. I left Iraq Oct 10, 1963. My mother came to live with
me in 1971. I married an American and have not looked back,
neither do I want to look back at some of the terror we endured.
Now, I feel as
if I had not escaped! The damn long arm of the terrorists
have reached our tranquil country. I hope we Americans can
finally give a blow to these bastards.
