Khorramshahr

In memory of the liberation of Khorramshahr (the third of Khordad of 1361, 23 May 1982) during the Iran-Iraq War, listen to a song dedicated to Mohammad Jahan Ara and other martyrs of Iran.

In defense of Iran, women, too, made their sacrifices, though, as in any military aspect of national history, they are more often included in the iconography of the nation as wives, mothers, and daughters of fallen heroes than in their own right: "و زنانی که پابه پای مردان ایستادند."
