Bahrain William Dehqani-Tafti

H.B. Dehqani-Tafti

This is a reprint of a 70 page booklet about one of the Christian martyrs of the Iranian Church. Mr. Robin Waterfield, a man who spent a great deal of his life in the publishing world has written: “This small booklet is a tribute to one of the most remarkable young men of his generation – BAHRAM DEHQANI-TAFTI: Son of the Bishop in Iran, and his English wife Margaret, Bahram loved both countries deeply. As a student in Oxford he took part in an amazingly large variety of activities – culturial, musical and sporting – before going on to postgraduate work in the U.S.A. After that Bahram determined to return to Iran, then on the throes of revolution. But he was struck down by an assassin’s bullet in May 1980 at the age of 24. During his short life Bahram endeared himself to a wide range of people. This short compilation expresses the love and friendship of many who knew him.”
