Mother Leila Zamansarai, Mother Rostamali Pour
Mother Leila Zamansarai, Mother Rostamali Pour, was born in Rasht in 1316 (1937). She came to Tehran after her marriage at the age of 17. During her youth she became familiar with politics through her elder brother. Leila’s mother had six children five of whom were politically active. Gita, the oldest daughter of Mother Leila, married Nabi Jadidi in 1361 (1982), one of her fellow freedom fighters and an active member of the Organization of People´s Fadai Guerrillas (Minority). Forty days after their marriage, the Islamic Republic arrested Nabi. It was from that time that Mother Leila started knocking the doors of prisons in search of her son-in-law Nabi. After three months’ unrelenting search, Mother Leila found Nabi in Evin Prison. With a great deal of efforts, she was able to see him once from behind the glass wall in the Evin Prison.
In Aban 1364 (Oct.-Nov. 1985), the Islamic regime arrested Parviz Rostamali Pour, son of Mother Leila and her son-in-law, Majid Evani, who were active members of the Organization of People´s Fadai Guerrillas (Minority). Once again, Mother Leila started knocking the doors of the Evin Prison days, weeks and months after month in search of her dear ones. Ultimately, after months’ efforts and suffering, she learned the news that they were imprisoned in Evin Prison. From that time onwards Mother Rostamali Pour, together with a large number of other mothers, made efforts to meet their children and secure their release. Following those efforts, Mother Leila (Mother Rostamali Pour) could meet Majid once and Parviz several times in the Evin Prison.
For finding her son Parviz and her son-in-law Majid, Mother Leila suffered a lot mentally and emotionally. Like other mothers, she was insulted and mentally tortured by the security agents of the Islamic regime and prison guards of Evin and Gohardasht. Despite her efforts and suffering, the Islamic regime executed Nabi in 1362 (1983). Parviz and Majid were also executed during the massacre of political prisoners in the summer of 1367 (1988). From Ordibehesht 1362 (April-May 1983), since the Islamic regime buried Nabi in Khavaran in secret, Mother Rostamali Pour started to visit Khavaran. Along with other bereaved mothers, she sought justice for her loved ones but was never able to reach it. Mother Leila was never able to have a normal life after that her son and two sons-in-law were executed. Mother Leila, with a heart full of pain and suffering, died in 1379 (2000) at the age of 62 in the City of Trondheim, Norway.
