Martyrs Memorial at the Mausoleum of Khawje Rabie

The memory of the dreadful Iran-Iraq War of the 80s is still fresh in the minds of Iranians who lived through it.

 

One corner of the square outside the Mausoleum of Khawje Rabie is devoted to a war memorial.

 

I do not know whether the young men whose photos are displayed in the memorial are actually buried within the Mausoleum's precincts.

 

In any event, viewing the memorial and the photos of hundreds of young men in the prime of life was a moving experience.
