S A R A - Center of Archive & Research

a publishing and distribution agency, was founded in 1987. We specialize in Kurdish literature, language, history and also IMMIGRANT & MINORITY LANGUAGE & LITERATURE. SARA is located in Vasastan, in Stockholm City, and have a well-developed net of distribution contacts all over the world. The strength of SARA has always been the combination of own production as well as the distribution of external booklists.

We have also the ambition to start S A R A - Center of Archive & Research. So far we have these cultural activities: 1 - Research in ancient Kurdish history, language and literature, 2 - Distribution of Prohibited(*) Kurdish Literature.

Some of our works are published in three Swedish journals; Idétidskriften C , Allt om Mat and Mjolkspegeln. Our aim with these works is to spread knowledge about Kurds and Kurdistan. The ancient history of Kurdistan is very interesting. Scientific researche shows us that civilization rose from the area, which today is called Kurdistan.

Some of the significant developments in the history of civilisation are: Growing Plants (Agrar Revolution /The biggest revolution in the history) and Domestication of Animals , the Inventation of Wheeled Transport System / The "Begining of Scientific Technical Revolution" and last but not least; Pastoral Revolution /Planting of bacteria. All these historical proggress occured in the "THE FERTILE/GOLDEN CRESCENT" Northern Mesopotamia, today called: Kurdistan.
