Manjil, Lower Village Cemetery

 

In the autumn of 1988, some young men from Manjil visiting the old cemetery in the lower village noticed the soil nearby was disturbed. When they approached, they realized body parts were visible in places where rain had washed away the earth. This led to the discovery of a mass grave in which seven political prisoners, executed in the 1988 massacre, were buried.

The seven bodies belonged to political prisoners from Manjil, serving their sentences in Rasht Navy Prison at the time.

After they found out what had happened, local residents and the families of the prisoners dug up the bodies and buried them in individual graves.

To see the exact location of the mass grave, you need to zoom in.
