Martyrs' Lane | Şəhidlər Xiyabanı

Martyrs' Lane, Alley of Martyrs or Şəhidlər Xiyabanı (transliterates to Shehidler Xiyabani), formerly The Kirov Park, is a cemetery and memorial in Baku, Azerbaijan dedicated to those killed by the Red Army during Black January and later to those killed in Nagorno-Karabakh War. It attracts thousands of people from around the world, who pay their tribute to those who gave their lives for the Azerbaijan's independence. It also houses a small memorial to Turkish and there are plans to also include British soldiers who died fighting in the area.

Very interesting story, Martyr's Lane was park then become muslim cemetery then turned to Kirov park, now Martyr's Lane...so in future, are we going to see Park? History repeats itself?

Martyrs' Lane (then Kirov Park) during Soviet times

If you forget your history you repeat it again. So I do not think we can forget what happened to us during soviet era.
