March 31 – Day of Genocide of Azerbaijanis

A hundred and one years have passed since the genocide committed against Azerbaijanis by Armenian Dashnaks together with Bolsheviks.

The massacre that started in Baku on 30 March 1918 resulted in the deaths of 20,000 civilians, including women, children and elderly people. During the massacre that lasted to April 2, Armenian Bolsheviks led by Stepan Shaumian killed thousands of people, burnt Muslim shrines and confiscated the 400-million-manat estate of Baku residents. Tezepir Mosque was bombed, and one of the magnificent architectural buildings - Ismailiyyeh was burnt.

Don`t forget...
