Sheikhka Ruins
Iraq

Sheikhka, a village located in the wild, rural country outside Erbil, never boasted a large Jewish community. While presumably higher in the years prior to the community's dissolution (i.e., the emigration of over 20,000 Kurdistani Jews in 1951-1952) there were all of ten Jews there at the turn of that decade. The Jews were, as their neighbors, involved in tending crops and animals, as well as artisanal crafts, such as the manufacture of clothing and carpets.

Our researchers were told that the ruins pictured above were somehow Jewish, and they even bear markings that would suggest such a connection, but what that was, if anything, remains a mystery.
