Gulhar Hasanova has lived for the past seven years, together with 10,000 other Azerbaijanis, in a camp made up of old metal railway carriages in Imishli. The war between Azerbaijan and Armenia, begun in 1993, has left thousands of people displaced. Gulhar's former home village is occupied by Armenian forces. Gulhar was born around 1917. Her first husband and her brother were killed in the Second World War. Her second husband and two of her three children have died in Imishli.
