Sofulu is a village in the Zangezur uezd of the former Yelizavetpol (Ganja) governorate, later in the former Garakilsa (Sisian) district, and currently in the Syunik province. The provincial centre lies 126 km to the northwest of the town of Gafan, at a height of 1,900 m above sea level. After the establishment of the Zangezur uezd in Soviet Armenia on 31 August 1921, the settlement was integrated into the administrative area of Armenia.

The village was inhabited by 330 Azerbaijanis in 1886, 970 in 1905, 1,816 in 1959, and 1,124 Azerbaijanis in 1986. In November 1988 the Azerbaijanis were massacred or expelled from the village. At present, only Armenians live there.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the Turkic tribal name “Sofulu”. Currently, the name of the settlement is given as “Soflu” in the official documents in Armenian.

By decision of the Armenian parliament dated 4 July 2006, it was renamed “Nzhdeh” (Nzhdeh was a propagandist of fascist ideology). According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative area of the Syunik province.
