Tsitsernakaberd: Museum of the Armenian genocide
There is hardly any place where it would be told more about the Armenian genocide in Turkey – the first crime against humanity and the first large-scale extermination of people in the 20th century, which served as a prototype for many other events chilling the soul.
It’s hard to tell about the museum’s exposition, these photos should be seen for yourself. The museum has a very informative site, a large number of materials available in electronic form. In the museum you will listen to a guide who can tell the facts that you have never heard before.
The world history consists not only of victories and achievements, but also of ancient bones and artifacts. Sometimes there are events that are either not talked about or somebody really wants to keep silent.
The genocide is the mass extermination of Armenians by the Turks, one of them.
The topic can be taboo, closed or uncomfortable, but you need to know the story. Yes, and your attitude to it you will work out.
Armenian genocide memorial complex
The museum is dedicated to Death. The museum tells us about the deaths of many Armenians, from small to large, total death.
This is not only a museum, it is difficult to hear everything and realize but it must be known and remembered!
The museum is located on the hillside, next to the Tsitsernakaberd memorial in memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. The museum can be approached from the stadium Hrazdan along the street and turn right – there are signs. You can go on foot from the memorial or the Sports and Concert Complex to them.
On Monday the museum does not work – a day off. On other days the museum is open from 11:00 to 16:00 Admission is free. There is a donation box, those who wish can make voluntary donations.
It is very difficult and painful to visit the museum and see the silent evidence of the crime against humanity – there is a huge number of them. If you cannot come to Yerevan, you can see the museum’s exhibits online on the museum’s website.
12 stone slabs of a cone-shaped structure symbolize the lost in the war with Turkey, the provinces, and the towering 44-meter wall – the revival of the Armenian people. On the wall next to the place the names of the towns and villages in which the massacre took place are engraved. The Museum of the Armenian Genocide, which is located underground, hangs photographs telling about those terrible events. And on the hill there is a young fir tree alley: all trees are planted by representatives of states that recognized the fact of genocide.
If you are in Yerevan, then this museum should be visited first. This applies even to those who do not like to go to museums. In any weather, find the time and walk not only through this picturesque and complete world harmony of the park, but also plunge into the past, which is always with us…
The Genocide Museum can even be the only museum you can visit in Yerevan. Even if you do not like history or listening about the past, it is worth it, especially since the museum is located on a hill in the park, in which it is nice to walk in any weather.
Hence no one leaves without inner feelings. This place makes everyone think about the human fate and that each of us after himself leaves his actions on this earth.
