Azerichild.education is a part of Azerichild.info, a large-scale project, in which general public both in Armenia and abroad have an opportunity to get to know the most dangerous manifestation of Armenophobia in Azerbaijan - at the level of children's and youth literature: in fairy tales, poems, children's games, educational and popular literature for children.
The website includes excerpts from textbooks on various disciplines approved by Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Education and included in the school curriculum. They reflect dozens of examples of the manifestation of Armenophobia, hatred and hate speech, which are now cultivated in Azerbaijan at the official level – from the first person of the state to the media.
The website contains the original sources of textbooks for both the Azerbaijani and Russian sectors of schools. Everyone who wants to make sure of the authenticity of the published quotations can familiarize with them.
It is noteworthy that the hate speech in Azerbaijani school literature is not limited to negative statements only towards the Armenian people, but also affects peoples living in other countries bordering Azerbaijan.
It should be noted that Azerbaijani officials categorically deny the existence of xenophobia in educational literature. In particular, Azerbaijan’s Deputy Minister of Education Jeyhun Bayramov stated: “Azerbaijani textbooks do not promote hatred towards any people, including the Armenians. They do not call for hatred.” Vice-President of Azerbaijan, Mehriban Aliyeva, in her turn, said she would never allow raising the image of the enemy in the face of Armenians among the Azerbaijani people.
This project is intended to demonstrate the falsehood of the image of tolerance and multicultural mentality promoted by Azerbaijani propaganda machine.
The website does not contain any value judgments or analysis of the cited texts, leaving them at the readers’ discretion.
The site has been developed by "Xenophobia Prevention Initiative" Non-Governmental Organization
