Ruhi Jahanpour, who spent many months in prison in Shiraz, shares her experiences with the other Bahá'í women incarcerated along with her, including 16 year-old Mona Mahmudnizhad. All ten women and youth were hanged in 1983.

Sylvie is the daughter of Youssef Ghadimi who was one of the 9 members of the Bahá'í National Spiritual Assembly at the time of the 1979 revolution. As with many other family members whose loved ones had been snatched and never heard of, Sylvie has never had even the scant comfort of closure. Sylvie, who was not in Iran at the time of her father’s disappearance, tries to make sense of what she has endured the last 35 years.

Mahnaz Haghpeikar’s story is just as painful as so many other Bahá’í women’s who also lost their fathers. In this interview, Mahnaz details the events that led to the arrest and subsequent execution of her father, Badiullah Haghpeykar.
Baddiullah Haghpeykar was executed on May 8th, 1982 in Karaj.
