Ms. IRINA BOKOVA Director -General UNESCO

Dear Madam,

The Islamic Republic of Iran is considering the destruction of the well-known Evin Prison and its transformation into a public park. No one would oppose it , if it were not for the fact that Evin prison is a symbol of depravation and violation of human rights through the last decades of Iranian history. From its first days in the second half of the 1960s until now, the notorious Evin Prison has been the symbol of repression of the freedom of thought and expression of the several generations of political opponents in Iran.

We have spent periods of our lives in Evin prison where we were tortured and members of our families were executed or disappeared. The prison stands for a policy of violence and evokes particularly bitter memories of tortures and mass executions in the 1980s. This place is a part of our historical memory and we want to maintain and transform it into a museum.

We, men and women who support the idea of an “Iran without prison, torture and execution”, believe that the destruction of this symbol of violence and human rights violation which aims to eliminate this memory and transform it into a public park is totally disrespectful to the victims and their families. We believe that the elimination of these memories would lead future generations to forget and repeat the great tragedy that our country has experienced.

In our struggle for truth, justice and the rule of law we wish to maintain the prison building as it, as a record of oppression .This is not merely to keep tragic memories alive which our children need to be aware of, but also to ensure that arbitrary detention, torture, execution and disappearance never happen again.

As the mourners of thousands of men and women who were executed or who disappeared in this “prison cemetery” we need to keep these memories alive, to reveal the truth about our loved ones and to put an end to this kind of oppression. To this end we need to keep this prison building so that future generations judge these kinds of policies against humanity.

We would like to request that you help us to do this for the lasting historical memory and heritage of Iranians’ common knowledge.

We would like to request you not to allow the Islamic Republic of Iran to destroy this important historical memory.

In conformity with UNESCO criterions (IV&VI) we would like to request that you consider the prison as a part of world heritage with the name of “World Memory”.

With Best Regards,
