Visiting Grandpa Parisa Sabet Sarvestani [PARKAM]

In April 2014, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards begun demolition of a historic Baha’s cemetery in Shiraz, Iran. About 40 to 50 trucks lined up to remove the earth and accelerate the work by early May. The Guard removed human remains from some 30 to 50 of the 950 graves of Baha’s in the cemetery and placed them in an open canal to make way for the construction of a new cultural and sports complex ( My paternal grandfather was among those who were buried there. I wrote a memoir in honor of him and those who were buried there and later on decided to create a sound scape in order to share the story with others. I would like to thank my husband, Kamran Fallah, for translating the original text into English, Nika Khanjani for narrating the story so powerfully and Roya Sepehri for chanting prayer with her beautiful voice.
