The paper analyzes significance of the Stone Dreams novel by the famous Azeri writer Akram Aylisli. The writer published his work in the Russian literary journal Druzhba Narodov (Friendship of the People) in December 2012. The author refers to the massacre committed by Turkish troops during the Genocide of 1915-1923, when Turkish commander Adif Bey ordered the mass execution of the Armenians population in the authors’ home village (town) Aylis, [Agulis] on Christmas of 1919. The novel also condemned anti-Armenian pogroms in the cities of Baku and Sumgait at the end of the 1980s. The novel caused mass outrage in Azerbaijan, including demonstrations in front of the author’s house, public burning of the writer’s books and accusation in treason.
