Below is an Excerpt from my own personal account of migration d Iran>Austria>US 1983 By Plane hadieh, S. (Female) Age of Departure: 13 "This is the last picture taken of me and my brother with our friends at the base of the mountains in Azerbaijan, before the 1979 Cultural Revolution of Iran. I am the girl in the yellow turtle neck and my brother is the boy next to the older girl with the headdress. My family and I left Iran in 1983 for a two week vacation to Austria, one of the few countries to give tourist visa to Iranian nationals. We packed our bags with two weeks worth of summer clothes and left our home to the care of my grandparents."
