Documentary explores Iraq-Nazi link





A documentary exploring the Iraq-Nazi connection will air on a U.S. cable station. “Saddam and the Third Reich,” which will first be broadcast Sunday on the History Channel, will be repeated throughout the Saddam Hussein trial. The documentary includes rare footage of the mufti of Jerusalem as the nexus between the Nazis and Iraqi fascists and the Ba’ath Party. One of several featured speakers is investigative author Edwin Black, whose book “Banking on Baghdad” revealed the role of the mufti of Jerusalem and Nazi Arabs in the Holocaust-era Baghdad pogrom known as the Farhud. Production sources say similar documentaries are in the offing due to the wealth of information now being obtained about the connection between Arab regimes and the Nazis.
