Ayatollah Khamenei Praises Biography of Martyr Golab Ali Hosseinzadeh at Tehran Book Fair

On Monday, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, visited the 35th Tehran International Book Fair (TIBF) and commended a biography titled "Carpet Weaver Girl," which tells the story of martyr Golab Ali Hosseinzadeh and his devoted wife. The book fair, which opened to the public on Wednesday and will continue until May 18 at Tehran's Imam Khomeini Mosalla, features over 2,500 Iranian publishers and 60 foreign publishers, with both physical and virtual formats available.

Why this matters: The commendation of this biography highlights the significance of preserving the memory of martyrs and their families in Iranian society, emphasizing their role in shaping the country's history and cultural identity. This gesture also underscores the importance of promoting literary works that celebrate the sacrifices and resilience of ordinary people, inspiring future generations to learn from their examples.

During his visit to the book fair, Ayatollah Khamenei wrote in his commendation: "May the grace and blessings of God be upon the patient and resilient lady introduced in this book." The biography, published in 2022 by Shahed Publications, consists of 15 chapters and narrates the life of martyr Golab Ali Hosseinzadeh, a working-class society martyr, and his wife.

The author, Davoud Hosseinzadeh, initially wrote the book to highlight the hardships of his father's wife, but later realized the importance of including his father's story as well. In the book's introduction, Davoud Hosseinzadeh writes: "My aim in writing these lines was to keep alive and remind the prominent and irreplaceable role of the martyrs' wives. Their perseverance and patience during difficult and exhausting days have been crucial for continuing the path of the martyrs. Hopefully, the sacrifices and selflessness of the martyrs and their patient and faithful wives will serve as a guiding light for future generations."

The 35th Tehran International Book Fair has become a landmark cultural event in West Asia, attracting millions of visitors, including university students, scholars, and their families. Foreign publishers offer materials in various languages, including English, Arabic, French, German, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. The fair's slogan this year is "Let's Read and Create."
