Women visit the Tsitsernakaberd memorial, dedicated to the 1915 Armenian Genocide, on a hill overlooking Yerevan. Made up of 12 basalt slabs leaning inward over an eternal flame, the memorial symbolizes the rebirth of the Armenian nation. The 12 slabs are positioned in a circle, representing the 12 lost provinces in present day Turkey. In 1913 over two million Armenians lived in the Ottoman Empire, but by 1920 that number was reduced to a staggering 100,000. The number of people murdered was between 600,000 and one and a half million, but no Turkish government has yet accepted the term 'genocide'.
