After the war, Momtaz returned to her hometown and realized that her house had been burnt, she and her family had to sleep in this apartment. As soon as they entered they noticed the bloodied hands and woman’s hair on the floor, this house had been a torture center during the war. Today these hands are part of a ritual of the region in the times of Eid, a Muslim religious festival.
