Abdolhossein Sardari: An Iranian Hero of the Holocaust -- Holocaust denial by Iranian leaders has presented a negative image of Iran and Iranians around the world. It has also overshadowed the important role Iranians played in helping the Holocaust’s victims and survivors. This short animation looks at the story of Abdolhossein Sardari, an Iranian Muslim who saved hundreds of Jews during the Second World War. It was originally published in 2016.
