The Iran-Iraq War project is an apolitical and non-governmental project dedicated to preserving the memories of the war and increasing understanding of the trauma endured by the people of both countries. This war was one of the bloodiest wars in modern times. It not only traumatized Iranians and Iraqis alike, but has forever altered both societies on macro and micro levels albeit in different ways. It is essential to preserve war related memories, as well as enhance insight and understanding into this conflict, including its wider human impact.
