    I sent 2 letters , one to Dora Hamburg at NARA, the other to the journalist who wrote a sympathetic article in the Washington Post (Bill O’leary). That was in August
    I have not received a reply from either, while I am particularly disappointed that Dora Hamburg being the preservation manager, has ignored my e mail so far. Any other suggestions whom to write to? Please

    I think you need to circulate this immediately using move on.org or any other .org to stop the government from returning them to ISIS in Iraq who will only burn and destroy these important documents!! Please do not give up, please involve the media now is the time!!

    I’m a descendant of a Jewish Iraqi family that owned a large hotel in Baghdad in the 20’s. My father was moved to Israel after the family lost everything. I reside in Los Angeles and would like to contribute in any small way. My father is alive and well, although in his 80’s. He may be able to to offer pictures and stories of my family Iraqi experiences.
