Exhibition and lecture in memory of the victims of the massacre in Khojaly

Exhibition and lecture in memory of the victims of the massacre that took place 23 years ago against the residents of the Azerbaijani village-Khojaly was held at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS) on Wednesday, February 25, 2015. The lecture was held in the main amphitheater of IUS. Ismail Jafarov, Chief of the Diplomatic Mission of Azerbaijan to BiH, and the main organizer of this event, welcomed present guests. 

"Azerbaijani people who survived the genocide in Khojaly have great understanding related to the tragic events that happened in Srebrenica. The genocide against the population of Khojaly had only one reason, they were Azerbaijanis. When we talk about Khojaly, it is impossible to hide emotions because, in that one specific night in February, many people have been killed, among others, 63 children, "said Jafarov. 

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Metin Boşnak from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) addressed the audience on behalf of the IUS. He emphasized during the lecture the importance of marking the genocide as a reminder for the new generation of young people, of this unthinkable tragedy that happened in the past. Samir Šibonić, the representative of the Association of the Bosnian-Azerbaijani friendship stressed that the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina sympathize with the people of Azerbaijan mostly because of the war that BiH has went through.
