National Day against Chemical and Biological Weapons Observed in Tehran Peace Museum



To commemorate the National Day against Chemical and Biological Weapons which coincides with the anniversary of chemical attack on the Iranian city of Sardasht, an event was held at Tehran Peace Museum which comprised of a friendly meeting and discussion session with veterans and families of chemical victims. Many participants including the veterans and victims of chemical weapons, Peace Museum's narrators, families of the Iraq-Iran war victims, members and activists affiliated with NGOs, public figures and others joined us in observing the day. During the ceremony, concepts such as peace, war, violence, origins of conflicts and their aftermath were discussed. We furthermore paid attention to the role of veterans and victims in raising awareness and promoting peace-related values. The friendly ambiance was enhanced as the ceremony ended with the participants paying tribute to the victims and veterans of chemical weapons.


Sardasht is the first city in the world that was attacked with chemical weapons and a large number of local civilians are still suffering the long-lasting impacts of said weapons.
