September 30, 2018

TEHRAN – The Islamic Revolution Cultural-Research Institute has published a commendation from Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for the memoirs of war heroin Farangis Heidarpur.

The commendation was unveiled in a special ceremony on Sunday at the institute.

“Farangis” written by Mahnaz Fattahi is Heidarpur’s account of her confrontation with Iraqi soldiers after their village Evazin near the border between Iran and Iraq was invaded during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.

“A significant and untold portion of the war stories can be observed in the memoires of this brave and devoted lady,” Ayatollah Khamenei wrote.

“Brave lady Farangis has conversed with us with her strong spirit, the honest and kindly language of a villager, and the genuinely pleasant feelings of a woman. She has also shown us an unknown and important area of the imposed war geography in detail.”

The Leader also praised Fattahi for her creative writing.

“Farangis” was published in 2015 by Sureh-Mehr, a major publishing company affiliated with the Art Bureau of the Islamic Ideology Dissemination Organization.
