This talk celebrates the new groundbreaking work of two social historians on Iranian Jewish life and community in the 20th century between immigrations and diasporas in Iran, Israel, and the U.S., and paying tribute to the work of HIAS in helping Jews immigrate and resettle in the U.S. in the years after the 1979 revolution in Iran.
AJHS has recently finished processing the records of HIAS, which has helped families from Iran, both Jewish and non-Jewish, immigrate and resettle in the U.S. since the 1970s.
