Iranian Protestors Blame Jews for Persian ‘Holocaust’ at Jewish Pilgrimage Site on Purim

A mass protest occurred in Hamadan, Iran on the evening of March 24, coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Purim. Participants of the rally blamed Jews for the “Holocaust” of the Persian people, while waving Hezbollah and Palestine Liberation Organization flags and 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. While there is uncertainty about the exact identity of those buried in the tomb, some suggest 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.
