Jay has been working at the Oslo Freedom Forum, the annual human-rights conference in Norway. Among the many attendees is Marina Nemat: a onetime political prisoner in Iran, now a human-rights champion. As Jay explains, she was born in 1965 and was 13 when the Khomeinist revolution triumphed. She was sassy at school – wanting to learn such subjects as math rather than Khomeini-style theology – and was arrested at 16. She spent more than two years in Evin Prison, that dungeon, that nightmare of rape, torture, and murder.
Since the early 1990s, she has lived in Canada, and has written “Prisoner of Tehran” and “After Tehran: A Life Reclaimed.” She is an extraordinary and inspiring woman. Ms. Nemat and Jay have known each other for several years, and they talk over some of the key issues, personal, national, and international.
