Farzad, they killed you, not knowing you will never die!


Can you hear it? That is the sound of the secret history of the Kurds. It sounds just like a lullaby passing through cracks in concrete walls. 

Farzad Kamangar, a village teacher labelled terrorist, counts those cracks, argues innocence and shares the hopeful sweetness of homemade chocolates with his fellow prisoners. 

"Under ropes, the chocolates melt in our mouths..." and we, the readers hear through the cracks. 

Hear it here: the lullaby of legendary Farzad Kamangar.
