The Jews in Burma
- by Dr Saul Zadka
Saul Zadka visited Burma three years ago with the main intention of seeing the magnificent city of Pagan, but ended up with the discovery that two of his relatives are buried in the Jewish Cemetery of Rangoon. Such a revelation led him to research the history of a tiny community that originated in Iraq during the second half of the 19th century in the footsteps of the British Empire.
