Words cannot fully describe this place. I did not realize the extent of the Armenian Genocide. In about an hour, I fully understood the sorrow of this period at the end of World War I.
The long history of man's inhumanity to his fellow man has yet another example shown here.
There might be some people who feel that there is only one side presented. I personally was unaware of this time during "The Great War." Whatever the cause, it seemed as if 1/3 of the Armenian nation ceased to exist. The power of the photographs displayed, plus the knowledge that something similar would happen only 20 years later made this all the more thought provoking. I will read up on it now.
My host arranged a traditional Armenian lunch at an outdoor restaurant attached to the site. Sitting under a canopy of trees, listening to the birds, it heightened my experience of the day.
Of all the historical things I saw during my visit, this is the one that will demand more investigation.
