Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day

Today is Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day (or Armenian Genocide Memorial Day), a day commemorating the victims of the Armenian genocide of 1915. It’s said that 1.5 million Armenians were starved and murdered.

It’s tradition for people to walk to the Tsitsernakaberd Genocide Memorial in Yerevan and lay flowers at the eternal flame.

You can see photos of each Remembrance Day from 2007–2022 on the Armenian Genocide Museum website.
