The 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran

In 1988, the Islamic Republic of Iran suddenly locked down its prisons,where thousands of political prisoners were serving their sentences,some as long as seven years.
Five months later, the prison authorities summoned
the prisoner families and gave each a bag:

“Your prisoner was executed.”

— no explanation, no last will, no body, no burial location.

To this day, all officials have denied or lied about it.
To this day, talking about it is a taboo in Iran.

But now brave survivors and family members are speaking.
