A Ferdosi poem
Why are we here?
The purpose of this site is to serve as a resource for people who are interested
in preserving the heritage of Iran, including the arts, sciences, history,
language, and ecology. This is the only site for this purpose and its success
upon our members who live all over the world. Members and donors work together
to preserve Iranian heritage and its natural resources.
A goal of this internet web site is to document the stolen properties
which have been transferred to locations and museums in western countries.
These archeological finds belong to Iran and its people. Other countries
and citizens of the world value them, but Iranians deserve to keep them
in Iran or in their own museums in Western countries. According to the UNESCO
Convention of 1970, legal actions can be taken to return the stolen properties
to Iran or Iranian museums elsewhere.
Another goal of this site is to raise the awareness of the public about
Iran’s culture and natural resources by holding conferences and conducting
research on important issues. Different interest groups have been established
to gather materials and resources for all interested in research, education,
cultural identity, and preservation of the environment in the region.
