Interview with diplomat and academic Efrat Sopher about her late grandfather Meir Ezri, an unsung hero. Ezri was appointed by David Ben Gurion and served as Israeli ambassador to Iran for 15 years from 1958 to 1973. His achievements included assisting fleeing Iraqi Jews and marshalling aid for the Qazvin earthquake survivors. He developed cooperation in science, industry, agriculture, military, intelligence, as well as cultural ties, some of them in secret. Recording here.
