Everything had changed for Avram Dehpour in 1979, the year

of  the Iranian Revolution.  In one of the many letters

that he wrote from abroad to his friends and family,

Avram  admitted: “Many troubles have fallen on my head all

at once owing to the situation.” The letter is carefully

worded and does not refer to the Revolution – and the

same goes for the rest of his correspondence. If Avram
appeared in his letters to show surprisingly little concern at
 what was happening in Iran it must be remembered that

he knew his letters were being censored by the authorities.
