Hello, I am Parvin Firoozan, one of the witnesses of the massacre in Evin. I was in Evin, Ghezel Hesar and Gohardasht prisons for 9 and a half years. Although the real details and dimensions of the massacre of political prisoners in 1988 will remain obscure until the overthrow of the regime, the execution of Mujahideen women remains a mystery that has remained more unrevealed than other aspects of the massacre, and very few women have survived that genocide.
Of all my martyr sisters, I was able to remember the names of 100 of them.
(she Shows the list of names that it has framed and shows the names in the led).
I was in a building called Amuzeshgah which means school at the time of the massacre in Evin. Amuzeshgah was a three story building.
They cut off meetings and providing newspapers in July. They also took the televisions. At 11 o’clock in the evening of July 27, the speaker read the names of four people. Zahra Falahati, Mahboubeh Hajali, Farangis Mohammad Rahimi and Forough. The next few days they took more people, we did not know where they were going but in the following days we found out more that a massacre was going on.
I was in solitary confinement at the time of the massacres. I went taken three times to appear before the court, but the number of people was so large that they did not take us to court. A month later, when we came to closed-door rooms from solitary confinement, out of five rooms, each containing 10 to 15 people, all but one were executed. They had joined 3 halls making one big hall. For this reason, we do not know the names of many of those who were executed. They were women who had experienced the bitter mental and physical torture for 7 years. Including being in residential unit and 9 months in a cage and solitary confinement for a long time. This time they had to be sent to the gallows and pay the price of saying to be a Mujahid. Each of them was an epic and they won this terrible confrontation. Wherever there is a cry of resistance and their path will continue until the freedom of the Iranian people.
The situation in other cities was even worse. Many women in the prisons of different cities were sent to the gallows in defending their Mojahed identity. In many cities, not even a single woman survived whose names are not heard by anyone.
The history of the massacre dates back to early 1987, when cellmates protested against food and air shortages. Mojtaba Halvai, the head of prison task force, and a number of Revolutionary Guards rushed to our wards with their flogs. The ward had become a scene of open confrontation with the torturers. They took A number of inmates to the Evin hills and beat them while they were blindfolded. And returned them being wounded to solitary. Mojtaba Halvai said that we destroyed one generation of you in 1981 and we will destroy your next generation and we will not let any of you survive. So many of my heroic sisters were executed during by Khomeini’s torturers only for the sake of defending their Mojahed identity.
Tayebeh Khosrowabadi, despite the fact that she was paralyzed from both legs and her sentence had expired, was not released. She said that she had no identity and no place other than the Mojahedin. Ashraf Fadaei was one of these martyrs, despite the fact that she was supposed to be released, they did not free her. before going to court she said that she would defend the PMOI and die in the name of a Mujahid. Mojgan Kamali and Fazilat Allameh said in a loud voice in the cell before their execution that they would be whipped before the execution. then left and kept their promise.
Mahboubeh Safaei said before she was released from prison that if any of you survived, and could join the PMOI, convey my message that I will be steadfast.
Hail to my heroic sisters who, with their revolt against the clerical regime. they paved the way for the struggle of all of us with complete purity, and today we will proudly continue their holy battle until the dawn of freedom in our occupied homeland.
