Film “Julfa” on Cultural Destruction in Azerbaijan Available Online

January 10, 2008 at 5:41 am (Djulfa destruction, Djulfa history)

A version of the film “Julfa” by Research on Armenian Architecture, a non-profit organization, is now available online at http://www.raa-usa.org/Videos/Julfa.wmv.

The film tells the history of the Djulfa (Jugha in Armenian) cemetery – from its past to the recent wipe out by Azerbaijani servicemen. It features unique footage from the December 2005 destruction with an especially disturbing scene of a crane pulling out a large cemetery tombstone from deep soil.
