Tsitsernakaberd memorial was built in 1966 dedicated to the victims of the Armenian Genocide. The monument was erected on one of the three hills called Tsitsernakaberd, along the River Hrazdan. The name itself means “Swallow’s fortress.”

The monument includes a high pillar of 44 m with twelve lower slabs positioned in a circle. The high narrowing pillar represents the national rebirth of Armenians. And the twelve lower ones represent the twelve Armenian provinces that are today in the territory of Turkey. Within the twelve slabs the eternal fire is burning.

 

According to other versions of the interpretation of the meaning the two parts symbolize the Eastern and Western parts of Armenia. Others claim that the monument represents Ararat Mountain, Great and Little one, which is again in the territory of the present day Turkey.

In the territory of the memorial park the Genocide Museum has been built to commemorate the historical tragic event. The three main exhibit halls and the outer gallery with its own hall exhibit the museum artifacts and scientific objects in over 1000 square meters in size territory. The museum contains historic documents, photos and film storage witnessing the horrific events.

Both the museum, the memorial statue and the whole park itself was built in memory of the one and a half million innocent victims who were massacred in 1915. The consciousness about this should prevent future generations from the events alike, as those who forget the history are condemned to repeat it.
