Halabja: In the Golden Days – Part of Journeys Festival International 2020

Halabja: In the Golden Days, online, 12–18 October 2020, free entry

Halabja, in Iraqi Kurdistan, is known mainly because of the terrible chemical weapons attack in 1988 by Saddam Hussein’s regime as part of the ‘Anfal’ campaign of persecution. This has overshadowed Halabja’s peaceful and illustrious past when it was called the ‘city of poets’.

Journeys Festival International 2020 presents an online magazine brought together by Gulan through historical research and interviews with past and current residents, which forms a celebration of life in Haljabi before the attack.
