Interrupted Lives: Portraits of Student Repression in Iran
Banned from university. Arrested. Imprisoned. Tortured. Executed. Throughout the more than thirty-year history of the Islamic Republic of Iran, there have been thousands of cases of human rights abuse and students have consistently been the target of official representation and extra-legal violence. Whether treated as political pawns, punished for expressing their opinions, or violated for refusing to recant their beliefs, these students were kept from pursuing the development and free exchange of ideas, the hallmarks of education. Their lives were cut short or irrevocably altered.
