Great Patriotic War monument


Monuments to soldiers who died
fighting for peace and freedom have been designed and built throughout
Azerbaijan. Red Village is home to one of them. On June 22, 1941, Azerbaijan,
as part of the Soviet Union, joined the Great Patriotic War to defeat fascism.
The Nazi command was particularly interested in Baku’s oil during the war and
attempted to seize control of it during the battles for the Caucasus.
