Forough Publications and bookshop were founded in 1998 by the Mehdipour family in Cologne, Germany, with the aim to publish books that were banned in Iran.
Murder of Kasravi was the first book published by Forough in 1998. The intention was to publicize the truth about the death of Ahmad Kasravi, the Iranian famous critic of Islam. They continued their work by publishing memoirs of ex-prisoners of the Iranian Islamic regime.
Forough Publications now follows three orientations: literature, humanities and social sciences, and information. The publishing house wishes to call attention to Persian-language literature, but it also translates, publishes, and distributes works by German authors like The Weekend by Bernhard Schlink and The Fall of the Islamic World by Hamed Abdel-Samad.
Forough Publications has published more than 150 titles in different genres such as poetry, novels, children’s books, biography, and nonfiction books.
In addition, Forough supports the Persian educational programs outside of Iran by publishing and internationally distributing Persian textbooks.
