Revolution in Iran

Thoughts on and about the Iranian Revolution

Detention Centers


This is an initial list of detention centers and prisons across Iran. It is important that we have a clear idea about where our beloved countrymen are being held. There is a lot of work to be done to complete this list. The intention of publishing it at this early stage is to ask YOU to contribute to this list.  All contributions are welcome! We also need a dedicated person who is willing to have the responsibility of the Farsi version of this page.

NEW: There is now a google maps page, Iran Targets, where the location of some of these centers are pointed on the map. Please contact us in case you can pinpoint the location of any other site on the map. Click here to get to Iran Targets
