HISTORICAL REVIEW: At the Soviet Period when it was absolutely denied and unaccepted any national ideology, the commemoration of the Armenian Genocide and perpetuating the memory of the victims also was sentenced to obligatory silence. ArmSSR Council of Ministers passed a resolution on March 16, 1965 on constructing a memorial in memory of the genocide victims.
The memorial was opened on November 29, 1967 turning into great political and cultural event.
Since 1967, April 24 every year thousands of people visit the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex to pay a tribute to the memory of 1.500.000 Armenians, who fell victim to the genocide carried out in the Ottoman Empire.
