The Kurds lived primarily in what was once called Kurdistan. Today, that area encompasses parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. Because of persecution, especially by Iraq, many Kurds have emigrated to other countries, particularly the United States. There is a rather large Kurdish community where I live in Nashville.
