Iranian Oral Histories

With Iran figuring so prominently in the news of late, a visit to the Harvard Iranian Oral History Project could prove beneficial. There are more than one hundred oral histories here with digital audios and transcripts; these eyewitnesses accounts range from the 1920s through the 1980s. One can browse by narrator or by subject.
