As the clock approached in the morning, I felt a strange sensation; my heart convulsed as if it were telling me that we were on the verge of a major calamity.Iranian Islamic Militia (Pasdaran) killing Kurds without trial, August 1979.This picture was taken by a Persian journalist, Jihangir Razmi.Iranian photographer Jahangir Razmi, took 70 pictures of this execution in Kurdistan on Aug. A photograph capturing this event was published and eventually won a Pulitzer Prize, but the photographer's identity was kept secret to protect him.An account Saturday in The Wall Street Journal reveals the photographer's name -- Jahangir Razmi -- and story.
Their executions at a municipal airport in Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan, followed a brief trial during which no evidence was presented. It was, however, awarded to an unnamed photographer - the only anonymous recipient in the 90-year history of the award. Razmi preserved 27 of the photos on a contact sheet and stowed it away in his home.At 2 o'clock in the afternoon, as the intensity of the bombing wound down, I carefully sneaked out of the basement to the kitchen and carried food to my family.
