Ramazanali was among many Bahai members in his Local Assembly who were condemned to death. In this interview he remembers the harrowing days in prison, waiting and watching as one by one, his colleagues and friends were taken to the gallows. He was among the few who survived these horrific executions after international pressure was exerted on the Islamic regime of Iran.
