“Education under Fire” documentary screening
This documentary addresses the human rights abuses in Iran, specifically the government’s denial of access to higher education by the Baha’i religious minority. This peaceful community, officially banned from universities, has for decades created its own informal “Baha’i Institute of Higher Education “BIHE”. Meeting in teacher’s homes and on the Internet, the BIHE provided the Baha’i youth what the government explicitly denied them. In 2011 the BIHE activities were suddenly declared illegal, homes raided, materials seized, and the volunteer educators imprisoned.   3-minute clip: Education Under Fire
