Repository Name: Center for Iranian Jewish Oral History [Repository Details]
Repository Location: Beverly Hills, California, United States

Description: The project of oral history consists of the compilation of original documents and the recording of different individuals’ personal history as retold during interviews. The majority of these individuals were involved, to various degrees, whether in federal and governmental decision-making processes or in academic, cultural or social organizations. As such, these individuals are first hand witnesses of historically significant events, which makes their stories archivally important. Moreover, these interviews also include sociologically valuable information on the artistic, social, and cultural lives of Jews in Iran. These individuals’ oral memoirs are initially recorded during prescheduled interviews and subsequently archived for the research use of future scholars.
