Iranian Protest Blames Jews for Persian “Holocaust”; Historians Discuss Esther and Mordechai’s Tombs in Hamadan and Kfar Baram

Islamists “commemorated” Purim in Iran with a protest at the tomb of Esther and Mordechai

On the evening of March 24 in Hamadan, a city in Iran near the tomb of Esther and Mordechai, a mass protest occurred with participants blaming Jews for the “Holocaust” of the Persian people. The rally, which coincided with the Jewish holiday of Purim, saw individuals waving Hezbollah and Palestine Liberation Organization flags while chanting anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic slogans. Videos of the event were widely shared on social media.

The tomb of Esther and Mordechai in Hamadan has been a significant pilgrimage site for Jews in Iran for centuries. The exact identity of those buried in the tomb is uncertain, with some suggesting it may be Shoshandukht, the Jewish wife of Sasanian king Yazdegerd I. Another burial site for Esther and Mordechai is believed to be in Kfar Baram, Israel, near the Lebanon border.
