There can be no better way to hear a story of discovery than directly from those involved. Join us as we welcome Harold Rhode, who will share how a tip from an informant led to him and his team entering the basement of a flooded building, filled with looters and an active bomb, to eventually discover the Iraqi Jewish Archives. This fascinating story is one that is not to be missed.
