The Wolf of Baghdad

“The belief is current among Baghdadi Jews that the wolf keeps away spirits and demons.”
David Sassoon, scholar, 1917

Carol Isaac’s graphic memoir of a lost homeland revisits the old Jewish Quarter of 1940s Baghdad, home to a third of the city’s population which witnessed the death or expulsion of almost its entire community of 150,000. Journeying among its ghostly former inhabitants, she brings to life a lost world.
