"The Armenian Genocide memorial complex-The Armenian Genocide memorial complex is a complex building that requires at least 2 hours of admiration and visiting time. The first thing that comes into view is a forest of fir trees, each planted by politicians from all over the world. I recognized the fir tree planted by Sarkozy from the explanation card next to the tree. Turn left through the woods and first pass the 100-meter-long wall. The names of cities and villages where ethnic cleansing took place are written on the wall. Then you see a 44-meter-high minaret on your right. The front and the back of the tower stand. The front part means the lost Armenia, and the back part means the current native Armenia. The whole implies rebirth. Next is the memorial hall. It is composed of 12 arched stone walls, representing 12 provinces lost in Armenia after the war. Down the steps is a long open flame. The ever-opening fire, located 1.5 meters below the ground, symbolizes the 1.5 million victims who were slaughtered. Every year, April 24th is the National Day of Remembrance. Thousands of people will come here to present flowers to the victims. Leaving the memorial hall and walking back to the starting point, there is a stone step from here overlooking the entire city of Yerevan. Below is the memorial hall, which shows us the most wicked massacre that happened in this land over time from ample pictures and videos. At the beginning of the last century, in order to prevent the Armenians from resisting the land occupation, the Ottoman Empire systematically and premeditated carried out a purge-like massacre on the Armenians in the ruling area. In the past few years, 1.5 million innocent women, children, and elderly people have been killed inhumanely. History will not be forgotten, but why does history reappear?"
