In 1988, one of the most horrific crimes against humanity took place. More than 30,000 people were executed during the course of one single summer following the orders of the Supreme Leader of Iran at that time. Most of the victims were members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, the PMOI, the main opposition to the brutal ruling regime. No-one was spared – not even pregnant women and minors.
