The Armenian Genocide Institute-Museum is among the World’s 10 Most Important Memorial Museums according to a list formed by The Cultural Trip site.

The list includes the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Japan, Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos (Museum of Memory and Human Rights) in Chile, Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in Poland, Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Cambodia, Armenian Genocide Museum in Yerevan, Yad Vashem in Israel, Nanjing Massacre Memorial Museum in China, Apartheid Museum in South Africa, September 11 Memorial Museum in New York and La Maison des Esclaves (the House of Slaves) in Senegal.

Referring to the Armenian Genocide as The Great Crime (Medz Yeghern) in Armenia, the article states: the Armenian Genocide was arguably the greatest tragedy ever to strike the Armenian nation. The Ottoman government’s symbolic execution of 250 high-ranking Armenian leaders and intellectuals in 1915 was only the beginning of a massacre that would consume one million lives, and see women and children driven out to the Eastern deserts on death marches, while most able-bodied men were put to forced labor.

The Armenian Genocide Museum in Yerevan is a gripping walk through history, from the pre-genocide era to heart-wrenching interviews, eyewitness reports and films that speak of the intense anguish of the genocide survivors.
