Helene Krulich-Ghassemlou

Love against all Reason

A European Woman Involved in the Kurdish Fight for Freedom in Iran

Reihe: Österreichische Kulturforschung, Band 22, 2017, broschiert, 264 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-90922-0

In her teens Helene Krulich fell in love with a young Kurdish student in Prague and married him. Thus she got involved into the Kurds' fight for their basic rights not only in the future Kurdish leader Abdol Rahman Ghassemlou's native country Iran.

Mostly living clandestinely she also passed through Iraq and Syria side by side with members of the respective Kurdish freedom-fighters. In parallel she became a contemporary witness of history in her own native country, Czechoslovakia, from the Soviet occupation up to its EU-membership. Finally she had to face Ghassemlou's assassination upon state order by Iranian "peace-negotiators" in Vienna in 1989. In vain she fought for an investigation of the crime by Austria's police and legal institutions.

Living in Paris now she wrote her memoir as a very personal "history from below".
