Tsitsernakaberd – Visiting the Armenian Genocide Museum

We had an opportunity to visit Tsitsernakaberd, the Armenian Genocide Museum.  This visit was very special because 2015 is the centennial of the 1915 Armenian Genocide, when the Ottoman Turk government systematically killed an estimated 1.5 million christian Armenians.  Much like the Jewish Holocaust has its deniers, there too exist deniers of the Armenian Genocide.  Regardless, it was an emotional and educational visit, and one that is unforgettable.

We also stopped by the vast Armenian Sports Complex for – you guessed it – more photos!
