Iran in the early eighties was a very dangerous place to be.
Especially if you were Kurdish, a woman and opposed to the rule of the Mullahs.
In this deeply personal memoir, Shemal Samuelson recounts her experiences at the time, recalling the events that led to her having to leave her home, her family and her friends, not knowing if she would ever see them alive again.
From the bitter hardships some women endured to ensure their loved ones were not executed without trial, to the emotional toll that took on their families, no stone is left unturned in this brutal portrayal of Ayatollah Khomeini's regime.
