"The Cemetery" Halabja Things to Do Tip by maykal
Halabja Things to Do: 3 reviews and 13 photos
The other "sight" in Halabja is the town cemetery, where row upon row of white tombstones commemorate the victims who died at the scene of the attacks. Many of the wounded were taken to Iran where some later died, so there is another Halabja Cemetery in Tehran. Others are still "missing". Two mass graves are also marked, each containing more than a thousand victims. It was a peaceful place, and empty apart from a few locals who had come to pray under a nearby tree, despite the drizzle.
To find it, ask around as it isn't obvious. The booklet handed out at the Halabja Monument has a photo, which helped us get directions.
