TEHRAN -- The Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA) has recently produced a series of notebooks bearing images of contemporary martyrs who were killed during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war and Persian mythical figures.

Legend has it that Arash shot an arrow from the peak of Mount Damavand (Iran’s highest mountain) to mark the border of Iran and Turan after the long-lasting war between the two countries. He had pulled his bow with all his strength, collapsed to the ground on Mount Damavand and passed away.
The great commander Ario Barzan, a historic Persian hero who, along with his small contingent of soldiers, braved the massive attack launched by the army of Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) as a result of which he was killed in the region.
Mohammad-Ebrahim Hemmat (1955-1983) was an Iranian commander during Iran-Iraq war. He was martyred in the Kheibar Operation.
