He also underscored the importance of the role of women in the resistance literature, going on to say that while men resist on the front line, their resistance depends on the endurance of women behind the frontlines.

Sarhangi pointed out that the world appreciates resistance literature because every country acquires it at the expense of its youth.
“Two years after the end of World War II in 1947, in Germany a group of writers known as Group 47 was founded to write memoirs of soldiers, and this group is still active today. I also recently returned from a trip to Russia, where I discovered that a writers’ union had been formed which also publishes war memoirs. A Russian commander viewed Russia as nothing more than a vast stretch of land devoid of war literature,” he said.
He explained that this means that resistance literature has become ingrained in our culture and people of a country should be aware of the honors given to their ancestors during war.
