TEHRAN, (SCIB) - Ghasem Ya Hosseini said: War is considered as a governmental issue and the publishers show lack on interest in printing works on war. Quoting Ibna, Navideshahed reports:

Ghasem Ya Hosseini, an author, added that any publisher who prints books on war is regarded to be affiliated with the government. This is the cause that we have no good position and most of the works produced are under standard and do not reach their second editions. The sacred \war literature needs purposeful management so that it becomes a public interest.

This write has referred to the position of the oral history in the world and mentioned that: the oral history in the world is a very important approach that has been developed in different areas wonderfully. This kind of literature is taught as academic fields in universities.
He added that the oral history has penetrated in every area in the United States and Europe; you can order an oral history about family and sports and … and it is done easily.
He stated that: There are thousands of oral histories about the wars of Vietnam and America, America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This kind of literature has become one of the most common forms of writing history.

The author of "Red Olive [Zeitoon Sorkh]" has referred to the advent of the resistance literature in the countries that were actively involved in wars and said: we have two kinds of war; aggressive wars and resistance war. The aggressors have no literature to be proud of. America's aggression on Vietnam is no honor. But resistance literature forms in Russia when they were attacked by the Hitler Fascists and there are more than 50,000 memories of the soldiers and officers involved in the war.

About the ways of collecting these memoirs Ya Hosseini said: Officers and soldiers refer to an institute to whom some experts are introduced and they recount their stories for them. Nowadays, those who are freed from Guantanamo jail, upload their memories on a website.

The writer of the "Last Shooting" has said about the position of the Oral History in the contemporary literature that: The oral history in Iran is considered appropriate for the war and Islamic Republic. The office of resistance Literature and Art of the department of art has been precursor in this field and has edited and published 50 copies of the memories of the Iraqi soldiers. This number is so weak when we refer to the 60,000 Iraqi captives in Iran.
Regarding the pathology in this field, he said: one of the serious dangers that we are facing at the present moment in dealing with the generation involved in the war is oblivion dull memories in remembering the war events.
Ghasem Ya Hosseini said: we have only ten years to enrich the memories that have become sediment in the minds of those who took part in the war. In my writings I always point out that there are two million fighters and if we register only % 10 of their memories we reach 200,000 memories. And if we are able to publish only 1000 memories, we need 200 years to publish this percentage of the memories.
He added that: 20years has passed since the end of the war and we only published 5 thousand works. This shows that the sacred war literature is backward. If we publish 5000 works within the next ten years, a large part of our history will remain untold and will pass away without being narrated.

Ya Hosseini referred to the position of the oral history in fiction and said: memoirs are a sub – jargon of literature. If we could write the memoirs of the fighters we have written the history of war. The Oral history provides the writers and artists with the raw material. The oral history serves literature in dramatizing a great event. The great example in this regard is Leo Tolstoy's "War and Peace". Napoleon attacked Russia in 1812 but War and Peace was published in late 19th. C. It was the historians that provided Tolstoy with the raw material and after studying these data, Tolstoy was able to write his masterpiece.

The author of "Hidden under the Rain" added: from the war of Iran with Russia to the forced war, we have been defeated in whatever war we entered or we have lost a part of our country. In the great war of Iran and Russia that lasted for 27 years we lost a large part of the North of the country. In the 1856 war with England, Afghanistan was separated from Iran. During the World War 1 and 2 a large part of our country was occupied and our people suffered a lot. After 150 years, the only war that lasted for 8 years and we did not lose any part of the country was the forced war and the trespasser was acknowledged to be Iraq in the Peace treaty of United Nations. Our national pride was enlivened after 150 years after we released Khoramshahr. In grandeur of the forced war it is important to know that 36 countries were helping Saddam directly and 1 / 3 of the 30 years life of Islamic Republic was devoted to the war.

Ya Hosseini has emphasized the necessity of studying in this regard and said: since war is human phenomenon, it has to be studied. War like other human factors is regarded as an inseparable part of human life. Let's study and think about war. In addition to all the institutes that we have, we need some research institutes dedicated to war and war conditions. War has to be studied meticulously, philosophically and socially.

Finally he referred to the present approach to this issue and added: War is regarded as a state issue in any way. Many free thinkers and writers believe that if they write on war, their work is regarded as a state work. The private publishers do not show any interest in the works on war. Any one who publishes books on war is ascribed with the government. Since the dominant atmosphere on enlightenment and writing in Iran is oppositionists and people try to be more in opposition camp than in position one; they are not so much interested in war issues. Those who are working in this field are accused of being in relation to government and being under their influence. There are also some people who have no writing talent but have shown interest only for the sake of benefit. These factors cause war literature not to have an appropriate position and most of the productions are under standard even not to achieve their second edition. Many governmental institutes, due to not presenting their published works are facing store crisis and give their stocks for present. Therefore the sacred war Literature needs purposeful management to be a common interest.

Ya Hosseini have published 80 works so far and is regarded as one of the most notable writers in writing memoirs of women in the holy defense war.

Some of Ya Hosseini's books are: "hidden Under the Rain" (the memoir of commander in chief, general Naseri, commander of Nosrat Base), "The Guest of War Bullets" (Memoirs of a fighter who was captivated three days after the peace treaty), "Quiver of the Fortune" (Memories of the wife of Martyr Masoud Khal'atbari, the first martyr of the army in facing America in Persian Gulf), "Khoramshahr, Capital of the War", Face to Face with the Satan" (memories of Abdol Karim Mozaffari), "Behind the Entrenchment of the Wave"(memoirs of Hasan Sharifi in Facing America in Persian Gulf).
