Pogroms in 1990

Third mass massacres of the Armenian population in Baku took place in January 13-19, 1990.
Hundreds of Armenians fell victim to intolerance and xenophobia of Azerbaijani nationalists. To save their lives, about 200,000 Armenians were forced to leave their property and ancestors' graves in Baku, and become refugees straggled throughout the world.

In consequence of the last massacres of 1990 in Baku the Armenian community of Baku, which had centuries-old traditions, went out of existence.
