Never forget the victims of the Halabja poison gas attack on March 16th, 1988, where 5,000 innocent civilians lost their lives. The Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein perpetrated the attack, which was and still remains the largest chemical weapons attack directed against a civilian-populated area in history. This is a graveyard and memorial for the victims in the heart of Halabja, South Kurdistan.
I drove by Halabja. And by Halabja Taza (New Halabja). My cousin, Aram, wrote a poem about the tragedy and recorded it. I’m going to post it soon for all of you.
