About Ezra Shahmoon

Ezra fled Iraq on 1914, in order not to serve in the Turks army*.

He joined his two brothers in Shanghai. At that time, they made lots of money and he became a partner with them. However, the partnership with Ezekiel and Solomon did not last for long because Ezekiel was a speculator. He didn not care much for the money and therefore they split and each went on his own.

Solomon and Ezra held on to their money but Ezekiel was alway ups and downs. They bought lots of properties in Shanghai and even a movie house.

In 1920, their sister, Rachel, got married. At her wedding night she got very ill and within few days she died. In those days nobody knew why she died. After that, all the family, including Eliya, his wife, Sera, and their children, Naim (also called Albert), Kettie, Flora and Mouzli (Mozel).

(*All the men who went to the army , never came back. They were sent to Russia and since they didn't have boots, proper clothing and transportation they usually died from starvation, cold or they were simply killed by the Russians.

The women who lost their husbands in the army were left with children whom they could give no proper education. Those women couldn't get married because they didn't know if their husbands died or were still alive.)
