The cultural center of Tel Aviv “Neve-Eliezer” opened the mobile photo exposition “Justice for Khojaly.” The exhibition started its journey from the Museum of Diaspora in Tel Aviv, and six months later it came back to one of major cities of the country.
The exhibition was opened in “Neve-Eliezer” within the Days of Azerbaijan in Tel Aviv, which were initiated by the International Association Azerbaijan-Israel (AZIS), Heydar Aliyev Fund, and the international charity fund STMEGI. The Tel Aviv administration helped with the organization of the exhibition. The vice-mayor of Tel Aviv, Arnon Giladi, representative of the Public Council of Tel Aviv, Elena Yufit, the head of Tel Aviv office of the Federation of Russian Speaking Israelis, Ilya Levin, and local residents, Azerbaijanis, including People’s Artists of Azerbaijan Dina Tumarkina and Pr. Mikhail Agarunov, expressed their impressions they got from the exhibition in the Memory book.
“The photo exhibition devoted to the bloody massacres in Khojaly impressed me so much, I was shocked by the pictures. It was real cruelty and barbarity toward Azerbaijani people. I was born in Belarus and know perfectly the history of the village of Khatyn which was destroyed by fascists in spring 1943. Today when I saw the pictures and heard the story of Khojaly’s massacres, I realized than Khatyn and Khojaly are synonyms which reflect the tragedy of our nations,” the head of Tel Aviv office of the Federation of Russian Speaking Israelis, Ilya Levin, stated.
