What travelers say:

[Armenian Genocide Museum] The Armenian Genocide Memorial Hall is located on the "Yanbao" hill in Tsitsernakaberd southwest of Yerevan City, built in 1965 after the outbreak of the 50th anniversary of the genocide in Yerevan. The memorial is small, and the exhibition covers a wide range of subjects, including the situation of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire before the genocide, the genocide itself, the reactions of the world at that time, and the impact of genocide on later history. There were three of the most brutal massacres of the twentieth century. The people are familiar with the Nazis’ massacre of Jews in Germany and the Rwandan genocide in the 1990s. But not much is known about the Armenian genocide. Under Ottoman Turks, Christian Armenians were not recognized by Muslims. Armenians, historically known as thorns, have been fighting tyranny. When the Ottoman Empire was dying, fearing that Armenians colluded with Russia against them, they kept looking for a massacre of Armenians until the height of World War I. Similar to the fate of the Jews, Armenians had been slaughtered many times in the late 19th century, but not on a large scale. It was not until World War I that Ottoman joined Germany’s side, and became a counter-measure with Britain, France and Russia. When the world war broke out in 1914, Ottoman and Russia faced each other and suffered a fiasco. His government was more concerned about the Armenians joining Tsarist forces to attack them. According to records, Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire before World War I had 2 million people, and after World War I had dropped to 500,000. Armenians had been fighting the tyranny of the Ottoman Empire, and their resistance group, the Fifth Column, had been fighting with the help of Russia. The Ottoman government used this as an excuse to expel the Armenians on the Anatolian Peninsula and drive them to the desolate outer Caucasus, the wasteland and deserts I kept seeing along the way from my car, barren land. Finally, this drive-through policy escalated into the Holocaust. Although the number of deaths is not accurate, scholars generally believe that 10,000 people died during World War I. In 1991, Armenia gained independence from the Soviet Union and established its territory, only 11% of the Armenian plateau. This is somewhat of a trigger for the serious situation in the future in the Transcaucasus region.
