Description

“The Persian Schindler” - Part 10 of the new Roqe Media series, The Contemporary History of Iran. How did an Iranian diplomat with Qajar royal family lineage, who was the Console General in Nazi occupied Paris in 1942, help thousands of Iranian - and non-Iranian - Jews escape the Holocaust? And why was his heroic tale left untold for many years? Historian and writer, Dr. Fariborz Mokhtari, the author of “In the Lion’s Shadow: The Iranian Schindler and his homeland in the Second World War,” joins Jian Ghomeshi from Vermont to discuss the remarkable feats of Sardari, and what motivated Dr. Mokhtari to pursue this fascinating and, ultimately, heartbreaking saga.
