444 Days: Voices of the Iran Hostage Crisis
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council

Nearly forty years have passed since the world was gripped by events in Iran, as revolutionary students seized the United States Embassy and began the longest hostage crisis in history. Some American diplomats and officials escaped with the help of the Canadian government and the Central Intelligence Agency, others were released early by their captors, but 52 were held hostage for 444 days. To mark the 40th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis the Council will convene former US officials who lived through those tense days in Tehran to recount their experiences and reflect on how those events set the tone for the brittle relationship between the US and Iran in the decades since.
