"THE SATAN AT THE DOOR"
- EPOXY ON CANVAS - 140 X 200 C"M.

ON SUNDAY THE 1st. OF JUNE 1941 AT THREE O'CLOCK, THE
MASSACRE AND  LOOTING OF HOMES, SHOPS AND STORES OF
THE JEWS OF BAGHDAD STARTED AND FINALLY CAME TO AN
END AT TWO O'CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON OF MONDAY.
MOBS ARMED WITH KNIVES, REVOLVERS AND RIFLES,
STARTED THE MASSACRE BY STOPPING ALL BUSES IN THE
THEN GHAZI STREET, LEADING TO THE FORMER JEWISH
MIDDLE CLASS QUARTER, TAKING OUT THE JEWS WHO WERE
IN THESE BUSES, SLAUGHTERING THEM AND THROWING
THEIR BODIES ON THE STREETS. THOUSANDS OF MOSLEMS
BROKE INTO MARKED JEWISH HOMES, MASSACRED  
CHILDREN, WOMEN AND OLD MEN, VIOLATED AND WOUNDED
MANY GIRLS AND WOMEN AND KIDNAPPED THE BEAUTIFUL
ONES. THEY SLAUGHTERED SOME BABIES, CUT OPEN THEIR
ABDOMENS AND REMOVED THEIR  INTESTINES IN FRONT OF
THE HORRIFIED  PARENTS.
