A genocide memorial complex will be erected in Guba with the support of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.
The complex is dedicated to the memory of those killed by Armenian Dashnak troops in Azerbaijani lands, from the fund reported.
The most tragic genocide in the early 20th century occurred in many regions of Azerbaijan. Thousands of people became victims of Armenian vandalism and many settlements were destroyed.
During the genocide, 122 villages were completely destroyed in the Guba province in April-May 1918.
Along with Azerbaijanis, killed with extreme cruelty, thousands of Lezgis Jews and members of other nationalities were also exposed to violence.
Victims of the bloody genocide were buried in a mass grave in Guba.
The memorial complex will be erected to show the world the criminal acts of Armenian nationalists, to perpetuate the memory of genocide victims, as well as to protect national memory.
