Several days ago this blog reflected on the incredible contributions of the late Iranian Jewish historian Dr. Amnon Nezter following his passing on February 15, 2008. An obituary on Nezter appeared in the L.A. Jewish Journal website this week, but our podcast recently interviewed Nezter’s close friends and collegues to get a better idea of his personality and his life’s work in preserving the ancient Iranian Jewish history. Our podcast chatted with George Haroonian, an L.A. area Iranian Jewish activist and Dr. Nahid Pirnazar, UCLA professor of Iranian Jewish studies, who both shed greater light on this special man.

We invite you to listen to this podcast here.
