This paper reflects on Athena Farrokhzad’s recent publication ‘Vitsvit’ to produce a new reading of Iranian history after the 1979 Revolution. Fatehrad would highlight individual and domestic responses to the new socio-political conditions to create a deeper understanding of the registered ‘history’, whilst emphasising the transgeographical quality of ‘history’ contrary to the more typical linear and regional belief. The notions of revolution, war and migration are perceived differently by the different generations, and this is reflected in their collective stories. Events like these naturally mean different things to different people, as family members are forced to adjust to new conditions and adapt to new people in the new landscape of migration.
