Persepolis Chapter 6

By Marjane Satrapi

Chapter 6

The Party

  • Time for another regime change in Iran. It feels like they change regimes as much as American Idol changes judges.
  • People are excited, but Marji's parents know better than to expect any peace.
  • Marji bullies a kid in school because his father was in the Shah's secret police and killed people.
  • Her mom sets her straight: "His father did it. But it's not Ramin's fault" (6.34).
  • After this, Marji realizes that she has to learn to forgive.
