Jews in Khanaqin, southern Kurdistan

A typical wealthy house of old Khanaqin town. This one is near the old " Seray" just a street across from the river Elwen. It belonged to a jewish family. They were uprouted in late 1940es by the Arab iraqi government. In 2005 the neighbours still remebered them. They had sold the house to Ghazi Agha Bajalan.
