In this episode, we will probe into a haunting chapter of history, the 1988 massacre in Iran, which claimed the lives of 30,000 political prisoners. We’ll pay homage to their unwavering courage and explore the quest for justice that continues to this day.
August marks the anniversary of this massacre, where the death commissions in prisons across Iran carried out a quiet yet hurried genocide. They aimed to execute anyone with ties to the Iranian Opposition Movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI).
We focus on the profound impact of the massacre on women. As we reflect on the 1988 massacre, it’s important to recognize that women bore a heavy burden during those dark days.
