About this map: 

This map shows the distribution of the former Jewish communities in Kurdistan. Blue pins are former settlements in Iran; red pins in Iraq; green pins in Syria; and yellow pins in Turkey. Question marks show the approximate position of unlocated villages.The Jews of Kurdistan spoke Aramaic and often Kurmanji or Sorani (i.e. Kurdish), with the exception of those of Mosul who were primarily Arabic-speaking.1881 population estimates for various larger places are taken from Andree's "Zur Volkskunde der Juden" (pub Leipzig, 1881). There were 25,000 or so Jews across Kurdistan in the 1940s. Following the "Operation Ezra & Nehemiah" exodus to Israel in 1950/51, there are few Jews resident today anywhere in Kurdistan other than in some of the larger cities.© www.bluebirdresearch.com 2012
