Chapter Summary

The war devastated the urban population of Kurdistan. By the end of November 1919, Turkish officials had left all the towns in the Mosul area, and the Turkish flags had been removed. The years following the war constituted a difficult period for both the Jewish population as well as the Kurdish and Christian population as waves of migrants and refugees fled into Iraq. Among them were the Assyrians refugees of southeastern Turkey who had been settled in Iraq where they were given land in and around Zakho, Amadiya and Dohuk. The disintegration of the Ottoman Empire caused a decline in the economic standing of the urban population. Despite the optimism following the end of the war, the economic and political state of the Jews was still unstable, especially during wartime, and then again in the periods of crisis occurred frequently in Iraq during the 1920s, 1930s and the 1940s.
