Azadeh Rohanian-Perry an American-Iranian woman living in Durham, North Carolina recounts the story of her childhood friend, Mona Mahmudnizhad. 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.
