"Double rows of cars mixed with a crowd of people; all sluggishly move along the narrow road. The crowd heads to a large hill that holds a burial ground and stands as a stark reminder of the young lives that have been lost. A couple in their late sixties are among those who have gathered. The severe escalation of Nagorno-Karabakh con?ict in autumn 2020 took their youngest son away, who was laid to rest there among many others who had met with a similar fate. Every visit to the cemetery opens the ?oodgates for memories, both joyful and sad. Their twenty-six year-old son was studying urban development and serving in the military at the same time. He could never complete his studies though. After the cessation of hostilities, the family did not receive any news for a long time, until his remains were found as a result of search and retrieval operations facilitated by the ICRC."
