The latest installment in A Single Arrow Production’s mini-documentary series–”Angels of Iran”–features the story of Mona Mahmudnizhad, told by a childhood friend, Azadeh Rohanian-Perry, who now lives in Durham, North Carolina.
Mona was only 16 years old when she was executed together with nine other women in Shiraz, Iran, on June 18, 1983.
She was offered her life to recant her Faith. She refused. Mona asked to be the last of the nine to be hung so she could pray for their others as they faced their deaths. When it was her turn, she kissed the rope and calmly placed the noose around her neck.
