781 Days in Iranian Captivity

Josh Fattal was released from an Iranian prison in 2011 after two years. On a visit to Israel, he shares the lessons of his experiences.

Josh Fattal spent 26 months in an Iranian prison. The 29-year-old American allegedly crossed into Iran, together with his friends Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd, while hiking in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan in July 2009. Suspected of being spies, the three Americans were interrogated, barred from almost all communication with their families and refused proper access to their lawyers.
