Most of us know well the sailing out of Iran to escape persecution and our knowledge of history begins over there. But who among us has not wondered what conditions in Iran caused us to risk lives and sail over the ocean to distant lands? And what of the forefathers who were left behind? At this Library event, we will get answers from Janet Kestenberg Amighi, our featured speaker on Saturday morning. She has done a lot of scholarly research on the challenges faced by Zoroastrians in Iran during the Qajar and Pahlavi dynasties and after the 1979 revolution. She has first-hand knowledge through her stay in Iran and her interviews with Iranis on the subject of preserving their religion in austere times. Look for further details on the flyer below.
