My name is Sasha Goldstein-Sabbah, and I am a PhD candidate at Leiden University in the Netherlands. My dissertation research focuses on the identity constructions of the Jews in Iraq during the British Mandate. I have obviously read your book with great interest. In fact, I have even assigned it to some of my students as one example of the Iraqi Jewish experience during the Mandate.
I am writing to you to enquire whether you have letter, private journals, and other written material from your family dating from this period? And if so, I could possibly have access to it for my research?
If you have any further questions about my research please don’t hesitate to ask. I look forward to hearing from you.
