Kordestan-Kurdestan-Islamic Republic

Iranian photographer Jahangir Razmi took 70 pictures of an execution in Kurdistan on Aug. 27, 1979, of which one won the Pulitzer Prize. It was, however, awarded to an unnamed photographer -- the only anonymous recipient in the 90-year history of the award. Mr. Razmi preserved 27 of the photos on a contact sheet and stowed it away in his home. Here are those photos.

Are they made public "for the first time"?

Actually, most have been available for years, presenting, along with thousands of other photographs of a similar nature, a small testiment to the notion, defended by the Islamist regime's appologists, that the 1979 anti-Iranian Islamo-"communist" revolt was "democratic" in nature!
