Shelters Of Death

الخميس، 7 أكتوبر، 2010

I do not think enough people know about this: The Amiriyah Shelter Massacre.

submitted 1 month ago by Baghdadification to reddit.com

I visited this shelter while living in Baghdad, around 2002. I was still in school back then and it was a school trip (mind you, it was the Baghdad International School, which was a UN school - not a propaganda trip.)
Of course, there weren't any bodies lying around or anything. However, you could see the silhouettes of people who were burned alive against the walls; what I will never forget was the frame of a mother holding her child, and a pair of handprints. The silhouettes were the melted skin of the victims.
In total, over 400 people died in this shelter. Nearly all of those people were women and children.
I found a couple of videos on youtube (1 - 2) with pictures. I warn you though, these are partly very graphic. Also, someone started a blog with a description of what happened.
As an Iraqi, I'm not asking for sympathy or pity. I just want you to see what happened in Iraq even in 1991, which is nothing compared to what is happening in Iraq since 2003.
Thanks.

مدونة غار عشتار (ملاجئ الموت)

كتيت عشتار العراقية  في مدونتها غار عشتار :
الصديق (سحاب) يقوم بعمل رائع ربما لم يفكر فيه عراقي من قبل. انه مختص بملاحقة الملاجيء التي أصبحت أفخاخا للتعذيب والموت، يوثق للتاريخ ماحدث فيها. له ثلاث مدونات:

ملجأ الجادرية

ملجأ الحنان

ملجأ العامرية

هو نفسه احد الناجين من واحد من هذه الملاجيء . يقول عن نفسه في مدونته (الجادرية) :


سجينٌ في العراق ولست فيه .. ملاجيء لحماية المدنيين تحولت الى مقابر لهم ... وأنا أحد الذين كتب الله لهم النجاة.

Al Amiriya Shelter - Documentary
I received an email from Sahab bringing my attention to Al-Amiriya: The Shelter.

Sahab, for those who still don't know is one of few committed and honorable people around documenting and showing the truth about atrocities too place against the Iraqi people, focusing on the shelters of death, one of these shelters is Al Amiriya - first time I wrote about this tragedy was last year, then I wrote about the interview Al Baghdadia channel conducted with families of victims.

The documentary is made by Siham Jouhari, a French flim maker of Morrocan origin, known for the award winning short movie “Faces of wrath”, about the war on Gaza in 2009.

I took a look at the website but could not find any news or a source to the movie.
Anyone knows about the movie, please let me know.
