On Quenching the Light: A very important and timely video about the persecution of Baha'is in Iran

Quenching The Light
Quenching The Light is a 9-minute video that features the paintings of 200+ Bahá'ís who have lost their lives since the Islamic revolution of Iran. The video presentation also includes video-footage of living decendents of those who had lost their lives in the past three decades and the faces of few who were able to escape the country and the persecution. There are also other Bahá'ís from around the world in the video segment who are concerned about the persecution of their fellow co-religionists. The video dramatically narrates the injustices done to the Bahá'ís of Iran since the revolution.

There is a typo in your description of the video: "living decedents". Undoubtedly you meant "descendants". It turns out that "decedent" is a word for someone who has died, so "living decedents" is self-contradictory. At least in the realm of this plane of existence, it is.

Thank you, Roger. I have corrected the typo.
