Abdol Hossein Sardari, The Iranian Diplomat Who Saved Thousands Of Jews From The Nazis
If you have never heard of the Mosaique religion or of the Djougoutes, an ethnic group including up to 12,000 Iranians, you are not alone. They do not exist. But they helped save thousands from Nazi death camps in World War II, when an Iranian diplomat made them up out of whole cloth in a daring ploy to conceal the real identity of over 2,000 Jews in German-occupied France.

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, when the world remembers the tragedy of the Holocaust, the story of Abdol Hossein-Sardari, the Iranian consul in Nazi-occupied France during the war, strikes a chord. Not only does it recall Oskar Schindler, the German businessman who inspired "Schindler’s List", the 1993 Oscar-winning film by Steven Spielberg; it may have been even more daring than Schindler's use of his good relations with the Nazis to employ hundreds of Jews in his factories, shielding them from death after the German invasion of Poland in 1939.
Sardari actually managed, in his correspondence with German authorities, to officially classify hundreds of Iranian Jews living in France as unrelated to Judaism.

An incredible effort in itself, what happened over 70 years ago in Rue de Fortuny 5, the Parisian address of the Iranian consulate at the time, appears even more extraordinary today that the state founded by some of those Holocaust survivors, Israel, has hostile relations with Iran.

According to “In The Lion’s Shadow,”a book on Sardari's life by Iranian author and journalist Fariborz Mokhtari, the young diplomat's charming personality was key in persuading the Germans of his outlandish claims.

The lavish banquets he hosted at the embassy won him the trust of the Nazi commander, and of senior German diplomats who had served under the German Empire and did not agree with Adolf Hitler’s racial policies.

It didn't hurt that the plateau of Iran, which in Farsi means the “Land of the Aryans”, was, in Hitler’s eyes, the cradle of his ideology centered on the mythical Aryan race. The Persian kingdom had also had a flourishing trade relationship with Germany since the end of 19th century.

I thought Jews were the smartest people on the planet and knew everything there was to know about everything.
