avatar for Helene Cadry

Helene Cadry

Helene was born in Tehran, where her paternal family had lived for generations. The Shah’s reign has been referred to as ‘The Golden Age’ for the Iranian Jewish community: they enjoyed business, professional and cultural freedoms. Despite this, Helene’s father could foresee problems and in 1952 they moved to Sydney. Helene obtained a Bachelor of Arts from UNSW, majoring in history. Following Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, life changed irrevocably for its 80,000 Jewish population.
