|Sitting atop Tsitsernakaberd hill above the city of Yerevan, this memorial is particularly effective. The 44-metre stelae elegantly and sharply penetrates the sky and is thought by many to be successful in its aim of representing the rebirth of the Armenian people. Nearby, there is also a 12 slab dome – each stone slab representing a lost Armenian territory. Inside the dome sits an eternal flame, kept alight to remember the one and a half million Armenians who perished during the genocide. Music plays aloud, further enforcing the Armenian identity.|
