For 44 days long Armenian people had the hardest struggle against Azerbaijani-Turkish aggressors and their attempts of genocide, as a result, we lost the great part of The Republic of Artsakh had numerous victims a great number of Armenian young fellows lost without a trace or captured as hostages. The war changed our lives, it made us rethink our steps, refracted our will to stand up and move ahead, reevaluate our perspective which makes new risks and dictates new priorities. Due to the military situation in the Republic, GSU academic and administrative staff, also the students worked together directly for almost a month, combining the maintenance of continuity of education and voluntary activities both on the battlefield and in the rear. Unfortunately, we also had victims and hostages among the students and the graduates. We had students, who fought bravely on the battlefield and they are our brag, hope, and faith.
