Ayatollah Khamenei about the book “I’m Alive”

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I read this book with a dual feeling of sorrow and pride and sometimes, I shed tears when reading it. I was full of praise for the patience, diligence, purity and genuineness depicted in this book. I was also full of praise for the art of the author in embodying beauty and hideousness, joy and sorrow. The memories of the mujahids and prisoners-of-war are great and valuable provisions which enrich history and offer us countless lessons. It is a great service to draw these memories out of people's minds and entrust them to art and drama.
This is one of the works which is worthy of being translated. I would like to send my best regards to the four woman champions of this book, particularly its artful author and narrator.
