Skip to comments.In Memoriam - Farewell Princess Azadeh
Posted on 03/07/2011 6:44:48 PM PST by FARS
Yesterday, I had the chance to say farewell in my heart to "little kid sister" Princess Azadeh at a memorial service held for her in Los Angeles and felt my heart well up when I saw her face live on in the features of her tall, elegant son Kamran. She was Prince Shahriar's kid sister but as he and I were best friends at the time back in Iran, she was also mine by association and I always thought of her as such.

Although from a Moslem family, she was strongly against the Mullahs.
Thanks for sharing at least a part of her story FARS.
Though I cannot speak or read Farsi, it's my recollection that all that's written in the video is Western left-to-right (except soundboard labels). Are they becoming "too Westernized"?
My sympathies to the Pahlavi family and all the friends of Princess Azadeh.
It always hurts to lose a friend, even from afar. I’m sorry for the loss.
It is ironic she lived and died in the home state of Jimmy Carter, her father’s betrayer.
Georgia is all cosmopolitan these days. When I went there from Oklahoma (for my brother’s first marriage) I felt like a hick!
We have enough Persians here in Charlotte to operate a restaurant and grocery or two. The spices are similar to what you’d find in a Pakistani shop, but I’d rather patronize Persians, who came here to get away from radical Islam rather than propagate it.
I work with a man who moved to the US from Iran. On my first day of work, he introduced himself, with his first name, and described himself as “Persian”. I understood immediately where he was ‘coming from’. He’s a very nice man, and his wife, who I believe, is also Iranian, is GORGEOUS! Both are probably in their mid 50s.
Now that you mention that; I knew a person from Iran several years ago. We both worked in a child-care/preschool facility. She was from a well-to-do family, and was living in the states. I remember that she was working toward becoming a citizen of the United States while she was working there. She asked me if I could help her with some American history, and I brought some books from home that would help her pass her citizen test. She was very attentive, and learned fast!
I don’t know what happened to her, we both stopped working there about the same time. She left the books with another teacher there, (who incidentally enjoyed reading them too!) I heard from that other teacher that the Iranian lady heard that her father was ill, and had left to visit him and help care for him, so I don’t know what became of her. I do hope she succeeded in her quest for citizenship, though!
Sad news, my condolences to the family & friends.
I remember hearing about Prince Shahriar’s assassination in Paris in 1979. Tragic & a great loss.
Thanks for the ping.
