Roughly 350,000 Bahá’ís live in Iran. Worldview speaks with Glen Fullmer, national spokesperson for the Bahá’í in the U.S., about the oppression, disappearances and human rights violations against the Bahá’í of Iran. As Europe's economic crisis continues, E.U. integration for Balkan nations seems to be losing its luster. Marko Prelec, a Balkan expert with the International Crisis Group, tells Worldview what this could mean for the fragile region. The National Hellenic Museum, located in the heart of Chicago’s "Greektown," opens its doors to the public for the first time tomorrow. Endy Zemenides, executive director of the Hellenic-American Leadership Council, explains the museum's significance to Greek Americans and discusses the community's reactions to the economic crisis in Greece. And, film contributor Milos Stehlik reviews Pedro Almodovar’s new film The Skin I Live In.
