Qorveh, the Baha’i Cemetery

In the deserts surrounding Qorveh, near the Baha’i cemetery, there is a dirt field believed to be the burial place of a number of political prisoners executed in Kurdistan in 1988.

The families of political prisoners executed in Sanandaj in September 1988 discovered a mass grave in this area containing over twenty corpses of male and female prisoners, including their own relatives. In 1988, dozens of prisoners, most supporters or members of Kurdish political organizations like Komala and the Democratic Party, were executed in cities in Kurdistan Province. There are no reports of the bodies being returned to families for burial.

In July 2016, this place was bulldozed into the ground in accordance with an order issued by the judicial authorities entitled “Change of Application.”
