Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

As Iraqis emerge from the dark ages of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship, the staggering dimensions of his cruel atrocities are becoming known. Remembering Saddam is the story of seven Baghdad merchants who incurred the wrath of Saddam. Nine years ago, after spending a year in the infamous Abu Ghraib prison, their right hands were surgically removed as part of an effort to blame small businessmen for Iraq's collapsing economy. Each man tells his story and friends, wives and children recall their experiences under the former dictator. Join us for a look at this powerful and poignant documentary, which as of now, no U.S. broadcast or cable network has chosen to air.
