Film of Gathering at Khavaran

Families of the victims of the 1988 massacre of Iran's political prisoners gather to remember their loved ones. Mothers and fathers who lost their sons and daughters weep at unknown graves. Children who never got to know their parents, place flowers and sing the anthems their parents sang before they were executed.

See parts of the film:

Imagine the loneliness of the teenagers who were executed in 1988. The pain of the pregnant mothers whom the Islamic Republic did not even spare their unborn babies.
Why were there no foreign correspondents there? When will the world ever hear about this atrocity?
Shame on UN, shame on all those "human rights" bodies who ignored the plight of the Iranian political prisoners in 1988, shame on all those editors and journalists who assumed the lives of Iranians fighting the religious dictatorship was not important.
