The First Middle East Peace Museum in Iran

Wednesday, January 2, 2008

Iran is slated to open the Middle East's first Peace Museum to showcase war-wrought havoc and the suffering caused by chemical weapons.

The Museum includes an exhibition section, a library, a virtual museum and a studio to record oral history recounted by the Iraq-Iran war veterans.

A number of chemically wounded veterans have designed the building which is located at the heart of Tehran's City Park.

A sculpture of a white dove mounted on a marble pedestal stands in front of the monument.

The project marks the 20th anniversary of Iraq's chemical attack on the city of Sardasht in western Iran, in which hundreds of civilians were killed.
