Cafe Baghdad Curriculum

Cafe Baghdad, a script provided by this resource, tells the true story of four Iraqi intellectuals in the 1920s, two Jews and two non-Jews. This resource pack includes a range of lesson plans and activities that can be implemented in the classroom, all based on a dramatic reading of the Cafe Baghdad script. Themes include Jews in Iraq, Jews in the MENA region, minorities in MENA, and a general exploration of identity.
