Iranian filmmaker Maziar Bahari produced a documentary series—chronicled here in 15 short videos and to be released as a one-hour film in May—telling the story of Syrian human-rights activist Mansour Omari. The activist was imprisoned and tortured by the regime of Bashar al-Assad, but managed to smuggle out the names of all 82 of his cellmates. His life story is the subject of a special exhibit at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The following vidoes, "82 Names," follow Mansour's harrowing journey, from Syria to Berlin and beyond.
