The military uniform of martyr Khudayar Yusifzade has been handed over to the National History Museum. The uniform was transferred to Patriotic War Fund.
The museum accepts memorabilia of veterans, as well as personal belongings of officers and soldiers who became martyrs of the First and Second Karabakh wars.
After his military service, Khudayar applied to the Azerbaijan State Border Service. He then started serving as an ensign in Astara.
Khudayar Yusifzade went to fight voluntarily. He took part in the battles for the liberation of the Murovdag mountain range, Kalbajar, Fuzuli, Jabrayil and Zangilan. The brave soldier always found a way to support his comrades in arms.
The 22-year-old martyr amazed everyone with his magnificent performance of the song "Vatan" (Motherland) during the Second Nagorno-Karabakh war. The video showing the Azerbaijani serviceman singing the song emerged on social networks.
The 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war ended with the Russia-brokered peace deal signed on November 10 by the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders.
The trilateral peace agreement stipulated the return of Azerbaijan's Armenian-occupied Kalbajar, Aghdam and Lachin regions.
Before the signing of the deal, the Azerbaijani army had liberated around 300 villages, settlements, city centers and historic Shusha city.
The signed agreement obliged Armenia to withdraw its troops from the Azerbaijani lands that it has occupied since early 1990s.
National Museum of History is one of the architectural pearls of the country, dating back to the 19th century.
The largest museum in the country was originally the private residence of Haji Zeynalabdin Taghiyev, who was the famous national oil baron remembered for his generous philanthropy.
Over 300,000 items are assembled in 10 collections in the museum, including a valuable library consisting mainly of unique books.
There are several departments in the museum: Modern history, Ethnography department, Department of ancient and medieval history, Scientific excursion department, Laboratory for museum restoration, Fund of Numismatics, etc.
The museum's collections provide insight into the history of Azerbaijan from past to present.
House museum of Azerbaijan’s philanthropist, oil baron Haji Zeynalabdin Tagiyev was re-opened on June 17 after restoration and reconstruction work.
The museum's opening was in line with the 100th anniversary of the National History Museum of Azerbaijan.
Additionally, the museum displayed new exhibits, stored in its fund, including paintings, documents, photographs, orders and books.
