Bronze Magazine: Tell me Nina, how did you deal with being only five years old and witnessing a revolution at such a young age?
Nina Ameri: I have vivid memories that I remember. I remember that there was a curfew. You had to be in the house by a certain time. The curfew was a new thing put in place probably for the impending revolution that was coming. One time the curfew bell rang and I was at a friend’s house, I wasn’t home. I remember panicking and my parents had to secretly pick me up. We had to leave secretly from a back door and through a garden to our car. Driving on back roads to get home without getting caught.
