"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.
