Marjane_Satrapi’s Biography

Childhood and youth

She is the only daughter of a family in Tehran. This family, of a progressive nature, sent her to study at the French Lyceum until the bilingual schools were abolished by the Islamic authorities that emerged from the 1979 revolution. She and her family, who sympathized with the revolution before it acquired an Islamist character, they lived with pain the restrictions of the individual liberties, the repression, the imposition of the female veil and the outbreak of the Iran-Iraq war, which the new regime used to consolidate.

In 1984, when she was 14 years old, her parents decided to send her to study at the French lyceum in Vienna (Austria), so that she could complete her secular education and allow her to develop in a less oppressive environment than that of her native country. Marjane did not speak German, but at that time it was easier for an Iranian to get a passport to Austria than to France. After completing primary school he returned to Iran to study Fine Arts, but soon after decided to leave for France, and since then he lives in Paris.
