Beyond Poverty: Photos & comments from Khoraamshar

There are 32 great photos from Khoraamshahr that I discovered thanks to Haftan site.SOURCE
18 years after the end of Iran-Iraq war, it seems no real investment was made in this great city.Khoraamshar was considered as a resistance myth during war with Iraq.
Dr.Djalili, International Relations Proofessor from Switzerlad says after war no real investment was done in Khozestan province ( Khoraamshar is one of its main cities). Because of this lack of care & investment many people did not back to this province and the number of Arab speaking raised sharply and Persian speaking population declined.Djalili adds this will create real problems in future.
