Nasser Mohajer speaking before a full house at Revolution Books on July 7, 2023 about his book Voices of a Massacre: Untold Stories of Life and Death in Iran, 1988. The event was co-sponsored by the International Emergency Campaign to Free Iran’s Prisoners Now.
Date: July 7, 2023
Voices of a Massacre speaks deeply to the nature of the Iranian regime and to the current moment when the courageous mass uprising in Iran, which was sparked by the September 2022 murder of Mahsa Amini for “improper hijab,” is facing extreme repression, including torture, secret trials, and executions.
Nasser Mohajer is an independent scholar of modern Iranian history, author of many books and articles on contemporary Iran, including on the prison systems, the women’s movements for equal rights and histories of the Iranian left. He currently resides in Paris.
The International Emergency Campaign to Free Iran’s Political Prisoners Now was a co-sponsor of this event.
