Tsitsernakaberd, Yerevan

4.8
A memorial complex near the Hrazdan River, Tsitsernakaberd commemorates the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian Genocide. First opened in 1995, the site draws scores of families and tourists to remember and honor those who perished in 1915, during one of world's most gruesome systematic exterminations of minority subjects. A striking 44 m (144 ft) stela dominates the forest-covered compound, symbolizing the rebirth of the nation. Visit the memorial wall with the names of villages and towns where atrocities took place, the eternal flame that pays homage to the fallen, and the informative museum-institute. From the terrace you can also see snow-capped Mount Ararat in the distance.

  • Compared to Auschwitz in Poland, more pictures are shown here, and this sad history is not only Armenian, but also human, and needs more people's understanding.

  • Great symbolic space to Armenians that evokes the massacre and genocide of the people, which took place in the second decade of the 20th century with particular intensity in 1915. About 2 million deaths of Armenians at the hands of the Turks. The space is a very extensive and is divided into several parts: the Genocide Museum, the memorial zone with a sharp Obelisk with several tens of meters high, large dome next to the Obelisk where bursts from the ground the eternal flame, surrounded by flowers, a cemetery where are graves of Armenian soldiers killed during the conflict of Nagorno-Karabakh and a wooded location with trees planted by world-renowned figures. Place so that they are not forgotten atrocities committed against Armenians.

  • The guide that accompanies us in the visit has a doleful face and tells us that every family had ancestors who have suffered genocide and recounts the experience of his grandmother and grandfather of her husband. Before arriving at the Museum through a rich garden where they planted the trees planted by famous people and not. With great luck individual Qatari Francis. The Museum is large and detailed manner: there is a before and an after a while there. In a small room is projected a silent film shot in the United States with actresses rigged but quite realistic are the scenes of violence against women. Then with a contrite heart you visit the actual Memorial where a young couple that with 2 children who speak English but who bring a bundle of flowers.
