Neue Rezensionen zu Marina Nemat
Die junge Iranerin hat mehr Mut als manch ein Erwachsener der mit dem Regime nicht einverstanden ist. Sie spürt schon bald die Macht der Revolutionswächter und kommt ins berüchtigte Evin-Gefängnis. Doch brechen lässt sie sich nicht, auch nicht als der Tod droht.
Marina Nemat is a child who loves to read. Because they learn English at school she even dares to read Western books which are available in a second hand bookstore. Albert, the man who runs the store, is so impressed with her love for books that they become friends. But when the Islamic Revolution starts life gets more and more difficult in Iran. Especially for women who can end up in prison when they wear make up or refuse the new Islamic dress code. One day the Islamic guards come to Marina´s home and take her away. She receives a death penalty. But her prison guard Ali is in love with her and saves her life. She has to convert to Islam and become his wife. But Marina is able to leave Iran behind and start a new life in Canada. Her book tells about her memories and about her friends who were killed by the regime or didn´t manage to get out of jail. This is a heartbreaking and shocking book. She gives many examples about the hatefull education. Instead of learning calculation the kids have to stand up and shout "Death to America! Death to Israel!" Her father use to have a dance studio but dancing becomes illegal and he has to close it. Reading this book you learn a lot about every day-life in Iran during the Khomeini regime and about how the kids are taught to go to Jihad and to hate the West.
