In an Associated Press interview, Satrapi said, “The only thing I hope is that people will read my book and see that this abstract thing, this Axis of Evil, is made up of individuals with lives and hopes.” And in her introduction to Persepolis, she explains that she wrote this book to show that Iran is not, as it is perceived to be, only a country of “fundamentalism, fanaticism, and terrorism.” Research ONE of the events Satrapi depicts in Persepolis – the burning of the movie theater, the golden keys, the cultural changes including the veil etc. How does Satrapi's portrayal of your chosen event compare to how historians and journalists discuss the event?
