“The violence in Baku lasted around 10 days and left behind a trail of atrocities in which dozens of Bakunets died. The Armenian community of Baku was robbed of their homes, their churches, and other physical manifestations of their history. Thousands fled the city, finding refuge around the world in countries that have long hosted parts of the Armenian diaspora. Among these refugees fleeing Baku was an infant named Yura Movsisyan and his family.”
- Movsisyan is now a star for FC Krasnodar in Russia, having moved to Los Angeles and starred at Pasadena City College before making his name in MLS. In Issue Two of XI Quarterly, “Americans Abroad,” Movsisyan’s story is illustrated by danleydon.
