What the Azeris Don't Want to Admit about Khojalu

by Asbarez Editors Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Deconstructing the Azeri Propaganda War Against the Indigenous Armenian Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh)

YEREVAN and NEW YORK—A new documentary – “Between Hunger and Fire: Power at the Expense of Lives,” about the events taking place between November 1991 and February 1992 in Karabakh – was screened on Friday, Feb. 25, 2012.

This two-part documentary recounts the shattering of the Azerbaijani blockade of Stepanakert (capital city of Artsakh/the Armenian Republic of Nagorno Karabakh), and presents compelling evidence about the criminal activities of the political elite of Baku – which led to the tragic deaths of civilians in Khojalu, including the victimization of women, children and the elderly.

“Between Hunger and Fire” will counter and shed light on a range of misinformation presented globally by Azerbaijan, the prime motivation being to shift blame from those accountable (in this case, the Azeri government itself) for Azeri civilian deaths.

Using a vast trove of materials, “Between Hunger and Fire” will be of interest not only for wide audience, but also for research and the academic community. The archive, assembled during the investigation of tragic death of civilians in Armenian-populated Stepanakert and Azerbaijani-controlled Aghdam region, entails grounds for a wider-scale film.

Meanwhile in the United States, a group calling itself the Azerbaijan America Alliance has launched a massive propaganda campaign of misinformation on the Azeri version of the Khojalu issue. Full-page advertisements headlined “Khojaly: A Human Tragedy Against Azerbaijan” appeared in the national editions of the New York Times on Friday, Feb. 24 and the Washington Post on Saturday Feb. 25. Advertisements have also been placed in Washington Metro stations, buses, bus shelters and other transportation venues in Washington and New York.

Following is the official trailer for “Between Hunger and Fire: Power at the Expense of Lives” (7 mins):


The premiere of the entire film will occur in Yerevan the week of Feb. 27 – March 3, 2012, followed by additional screenings around the world. The research group initiating the film/investigation reports that the documentary will for now be screening the film in Russian and English, after which it will be translated into seven more languages.
