At the event organized by the Department of Social Sciences, memory of the genocide victims was commemorated with a minute of silence and the National Anthem of the Republic of Azerbaijan was sounded.

Opening the event, head of the Department of Social Sciences, Professor Gabil Aliyev noted that in March-April 1918, 105 years have passed since the terrible massacres committed by bolshevik-dashnag armed groups against Azerbaijanis in Baku, Baku province and various regions of Azerbaijan.  Informing the students about details of the tragedy, professor said that traces of the bloody events can be seen today in the Guba Genocide Memorial Complex.

It was noted that the victory we won in the 44-day Patriotic War under leadership of the victorious Supreme Commander Ilham Aliyev once again confirmed that in order for such events not to happen again, we must know our history, and our state, army and nation must always be strong.
