The project aims to create a dedicated memorial complex to the victims of the “Great Purge” (Also known as Stalin’s Political Repressions) which took place during 1930-36 in USSR. The area is designed on two main axises connecting two focal points of the events: Bibi-Heybat Mosque – the first destroyed religious building by the Bolsheviks in Azerbaijan, and Nargin Island – where over 20.000 political activists were executed in mass shootings by the Soviet authorities. Among them was also my great grandfather.
