65th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation


Warsaw Ghetto - 1941

Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky.

Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever.
Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence which deprived me, for all eternity, of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.

Special Parliamentary Committee to Review Condition of Arrested: Full Report
© Persian2English

Mohammad Mostafaei’s comments:
Today the full text was read in Parliament, but the truth is that whenever those who form a committee move away from justice
and become partial, their reports will not be worthy of anything
and will not convince anybody. It seems that the goal of producing
this report has been mostly to set out a claim against two candidates of the presidential elections.

Read it and judge for yourself.
