The Everlasting Upright Men in History

“How many times did you ask about that?” I said, “Their state was clarified. The nation and their representatives in the Islamic Consultative Assembly did it. Would it be better than this? Do they spend bad conditions? You killed our young men in American prisons, but these live in the embassy hotel, what the hell do you want? During this period, it was attempted to treat them in accordance with the Islamic ...

Asadollah Alam Memory of Ghostwriting to Approve and Praise Royal Actions

In his notes, Asadollah Alam, Minister of the Mohammad Reza Pahlavi Court, mentions the flattering and special action of Abdolazim Valian, one of the cabinet ministers, which is noteworthy. In fact, writing various books in praise and description of royal actions has been prevalent and pervasive in the history of the rule of kings; especially since the kings were very pleased to witness such writings. Ghostwriting also flourished in the Pahlavi period.

A Piece of "Lasting Memories"

History of Establishment of Islamic Republic Party

I have been thinking about creating an Islamic political party and society for many years ago. Especially after the 1953 and coup detat of August 19, 1953, and given the experience I gained from the National Movement of Iran in 1950-1953, I hardly believed that our forces should become an active Islamic political organization. Hearing news of Islamic political organizations from other societies was interesting for me.

Review of Mullah Saleh Qaris Memoirs

The Story of Organizing Arabic Radio Programs

The fragrance of freedom could be smelled everywhere. No matter it was day or night, I worked with all my might. I [Mullah Saleh] was also a member of the Abadan Revolutionary Council, which was governed by Haj Agha Jami. I had sat next to Sheikh Isa Tarafi. With a pen and paper in his hand, he turned to me and said: Do you know what your most important job is now?

Nader Nofar Memoirs of Schools Contributions to the Fronts

We thought that we should approach the issue more prudently, when it got serious to contribute to the front. We consulted with Mr. Ahmadipour and Mr. Khojasteh and a few other friends and focused on two points; first, aids should not be scattered and the other is that aids should be commensurate with the real needs of the combatants. The second point was very important. If we were to send, for example, ...

Revolution is like Our Child

Previously, I was not very familiar with the position of marketers, especially guilds active in local markets; until 2004-2010, while preparing and compiling the memoirs of Hajj Mohammad Arab, one of the pre-revolutionary fighters and officials and ambassadors after the revolution, I became acquainted with Hajj Hossein Soleimani, a militant marketer and an intermediary between Qom marketer and other militant groups. Although in those days I was able to complete the book by conducting numerous interviews with about 50 persons;

Excerpts from the oral memoirs of Mohammad Multaji

A Narrative of a Trip to Kurdistan

After taking a training course, we were to be sent to Kurdistan for a two-month mission. We had already been familiar with Kurdistan and Sanandaj through photos and news; we had seen photos of the beheaded bodies of the Revolutionary Guards and news of Komala and Democrat crimes against the captured Revolutionary Guards. I was coming from the shrine to the water tower. People were gathered on the sidewalk, looking at a wall newspaper.

Oral history teaching

The Most Important Transcriptional Damage

One of the serious drawbacks of oral history is in the transcriptional phase, which is unfortunately considered insignificant. Sometimes, some people cooperate in group writing; The weakest member of the group is selected for transcription. The weakest member is a person who does not have a strong social presence, his/her time is limited, and does not have communication skills, enough literacy, and ability. It seems that this person is a marginalized one! While ...
A review of the memories of Masoumeh Khansari Bozorgi-2

Memories of the First Dispatch

My first dispatch was in November 1981 during operation Tariq Al-Qods.

That is, I was active until the beginning of the operation. I remember once I went to see Mr.
Interview with retired Colonel Qassem Nematollahi-2

Telecommunications is Like a Nervous System of the Army

Telecommunications is the nerves of the military. Have you ever encountered people with upset nerves?! How are they?! Just as the nervous system transmits commands from the brain to the nerves, so do telecommunication systems deliver the commands of a commander to his subordinate elements. Telecommunications in war is like a chain of nerves for a human being. Without Telecommunications, the commander, the watcher and the artillery will be useless, and none of the commanders can do anything.
