Arash Hejazi’s interview with Radio Netherland about his memoir The Gaze of the Gazelle

As British embassy officials flee Iran, we speak to an Iranian man in the UK: Arash Hejazi.

He’s the doctor who tried to rescue Neda Agha-Soltan, the young woman who was shot during the 2009 protests in Tehran and became an icon of the struggle for democracy there. YouTube: Death of Neda (warning: graphic content)

Arash talks to host Jonathan Groubert about living through four decades of tumult in Iran before finally hitting his breaking point.

The Gaze of the Gazelle is Arash Hejazi’s memoir of growing up and then fleeing Iran.
