Described by the New York Times as an elaborate act of communal self-preservation\, the BIHE has offered Bahá\;í\; youth their only means to higher education for the past 25 years. Education Under Fire recounts the trials and victories of the brave volunteer educators and students of the BIHE\, who have faced unyielding repression by the Iranian government\, including coordinated attacks in May 2011 in which dozens of homes were raided\, computers and materials confiscated\, and a number of the institutions professors and administrators detained and imprisoned on trumped up charges.
