Genocide museum.

Armenia and Turkey are not speaking to each other as they violently disagree about the massacres of Armenians in Turkey in 1915. 1,5 million Armenians were killed, but Turkey will not accept any resposibility and still have strong reactions if some nations consider the happenings as genocide. The German Reichstag recently voted to recognize the Armenian genocide. Turkey immidiately called it an insult to Turkey and called their ambassador home.

The Museum is hard to go through. It happened in 1915 and photographs are used as documentation. It made such an impression on me that I took only two pictures and one is of the outside memorial.
