Ulrich Ladurner

Kiss the hand that you can’t break
Stories from Tehran

Of saintly and unsaintly people, martyrs and spies: a different history of Iran.

Iran is an unpredictable country. Everything seems impenetrable, nebulous and threatening. In an attempt to bring light into the darkness, Ulrich Ladurner scouted Azari Square in the capital city of Tehran and collected the stories of its citizens. There’s Amit who becomes a saint (which also makes for good business), Baba Zede who notices every single hypocritical move of his neighbours, and then there’s beautiful Robabe who makes a significant decision. Ladurner tells how people suffered under the rule of the Shah, how they experienced the Islamic Revolution and how they are living today, on the verge of a new war. He intertwines historic facts and stories from everyday life in Iran, thus giving a valuable insight, story by story.

Ulrich Ladurner, born in 1962 in Meran, studied Political Science and History in Innsbruck. Since 1999 he writes as a reporter for “Die Zeit” from Iraq, Iran, Afghanistand and Pakistan. Numerous publications
