It happened on Hedayat Street

Four years ago, secular nationalist activists Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar were murdered in their house in Tehran by agents of the Islamic Republic's Intelligence Ministry.

Martin Cohn of the Toronto Star visited the couple a few months before their murder. He wrote, Dariush Forouhar “wanted people abroad to know about his work documenting violations of human rights inside Iran's borders. For that reason, he would have wanted the world to know about his death — if only his fellow Iranians to continue the struggle for democracy.”

These photographs were taken from the Forouhars' home on Hedayat Street soon after they were murdered. Also see poem by Parvaneh Forouhar
