“The Jerusalim Post” published an article about Holocaust Commemoration Mandatory in Azerbaijan

“The Jerusalim Post” newspaper has  published  “Holocaust Commemoration Mandatory in Azerbaijan, a Muslim Country That Fought the Nazis” article. The author Nurit Greenger  noted that Azerbaijan is a model for tolerant society, constantly striving for cohesiveness. She stressed that Azerbaijan is a model for interculturalism-multiculturalism, a country where they almost religiously practice the intercultural-multicultural, a behavior between people of different cultures, including different religious groups or people of different ethnic origins.

“In Azerbaijan, a majority Shi’ite Muslim country, they believe that the Holocaust against the Jewish People was “really a crime against the entire humanity.” In Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital city, in order to reaffirm the country’s solidarity with the Jewish people, some memorial events take place on each International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year, to show the sentiments of solidarity, a well-attended event, organized by Israel’s Embassy and UN Office in Baku, was held at the country’s top university - ADA University - affiliated with Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry. More so and beyond the designated International Holocaust Remembrance Day, in order to keep in mind and remember, all year round, the ‘Holocaust-Genocide against the Jewish people program’ was introduced into Azerbaijan’s school books. In Azerbaijan, with the hope to help humanity to save itself from such crimes to happen again, they teach future generations about the Holocaust in order for them to continue carrying the ‘NEVER AGAIN’ torch.”—the author noted in her article.

The  article also covered   the important role in Azerbaijan in the period of II World War, Baku’s oil played an important role in the victory over the Facsism.

“The Azerbaijani movie, “Bizim Jabish Muallim” (Our Professor Jabish) tells a WWII story about Azerbaijani families sheltering war refugees and the social difficulties of the time.”-the author mentioned.
