Jewish Tombstones in Iran

by SteveSaturday, December 23, 2006

BehestiehThere's a new website that lists photos of Jewish tombstones in Iran.

The website is the work of Los Angeles resident Shahram Avraham Farzan.

Farzan visited Iran back in 2002 to find his father's grave. While there, he found other Jewish graves and decided to photograph as many as he could, over a thousand in all. In many cases, he had to carry in buckets of water to wash off the dirt and mud, just so he could photograph them.

The site has apparently become very popular among American Jews having ancestry in Iran. Many Jews are fearful about travelling to Iran after the country's president voiced his intent to kill all of the world's Jews.
