Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Arts & Culture, Ethnicity & Race, History, International Relations, Refugees, War & Conflict

During the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh, hundreds of thousands of ethnic Azeris and Armenians were displaced. With hundreds of settlements also razed, and thousands of monuments destroyed, Conflict Voices looks at the issue of cemeteries, some of which were destroyed, but also preserved during the war as well as in the 18 years since the 1994 ceasefire [1].
