London bomb victim of Iraqi-Jewish origin

Miriam Hyman, 31, who died on the Number 30 bus in the London bombings of 7th July, was a daughter of Mavis Hyman, who was born in Calcutta of Iraqi-Jewish grandparents.

Mavis Hyman is the author of the Indian-Jewish Cookbook and books on the Iraqi Jews of India and the Jews who migrated from Baghdad to Shanghai in the 19th century.

Our heartfelt condolences go to the whole family.
