What is vital for the generation of the Sacred Defense, advocating Islamic values during Iran-Iraq war and also for the post-war and present generations, is to know the exact dimensions of the sacred defense and its values, as well as to continue and preserve the achievements and values that must be well explained and redefined. The present study examines the importance of using combatants’ photographs during and after the war in urban spaces, especially within the urban life of citizens, with an emphasis on intimate photographs of war and martyrs. For this purpose, the photographic murals installed in the “Shohada Neighborhood” in Aran and Bidgol at Kashan have chosen as a case study. In this study, a descriptive-analytical methodology has used with a survey approach. For data gathering, a structured interview used along with a review of library and online documentation. The results of the Research indicate that the residents have a specialized attachment to their neighborhood and, using photographs, are trying to create empathy and linkage of generations. The photographs in public spaces follow a more formal official narrative, with a mathematical look at the war. On the contrary, the public narrative of war is mostly in personal spaces, is not identical with the official narrative.
