Tsitsernakaberd is the official memorial to the Armenian Genocide victims in Yerevan, Armenia. It was opened in 1967 after a mass demonstration that took place in Yerevan on April 24, 1965, on the 50th anniversary of the deportation of hundreds of Armenian intellectuals from Constantinople that marked the beginning of the Genocide.[1][2] After Armenia's independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, the memorial became part of official ceremonies. Since then, almost every foreign official who visited Armenia included a visit to the memorial to pay tribute to the victims of the Armenian Genocide.[3] A visit to Tsitsernakaberd also includes a tour in the museum. Some notable visitors have planted trees near the memorial.

A wide range of politicians, artists, musicians, athletes, and religious figures have visited the memorial. The most notable ones include Presidents of Russia (Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Medvedev), France (Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy, François Hollande), Ukraine, Czech Republic, Poland, Greece, Georgia, Iran, Belarus, Romania, Lebanon, Croatia, Serbia, and Prime Ministers of Bulgaria, Czech Republic and other countries. Foreign Ministers of many countries (including US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and several high-ranking officials of the European Union — including José Manuel Barroso and Herman Van Rompuy) — have honored the victims by visiting Tsitsernakaberd. Other visitors include Pope John Paul II in 2001, Pope Francis in 2016, the Chief Rabbi of Israel Yona Metzger, the Primate of All England Rowan Williams, the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill I of Moscow, World Chess champion Vladimir Kramnik, World football champion Youri Djorkaeff, English rock star Ian Gillan, Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica, French actors Gérard Depardieu and Alain Delon, Nobel Prize winner in Physics Zhores Alferov.

No Turkish state official has visited Tsitsernakaberd.

Significance and controversiesEdit

Recognition of the Armenian Genocide is one of the most important foreign policy issues of Armenia, and is the number one goal of the diaspora Armenian organizations. Many Armenians look at these visits as a sign of recognition of the genocide.[4]

O Judge of the living and the dead, have mercy on us!
Listen, O Lord, to the lament that rises from this place,
to the call of the dead from the depths of the Metz Yeghérn,
the cry of innocent blood that pleads like the blood of Abel,
like Rachel weeping for her children because they are no more.

Pope John Paul's prayer at the memorial on September 26, 2001[5][6]

Pope John Paul II's visit in 2001Edit

Pope John Paul II arrived in Yerevan on September 25, 2001 to participate in the celebrations of 1,700th anniversary of the adoption of Christianity as the national religion of Armenia.[7] The Pope visited the memorial the next day after meeting with President Robert Kocharyan. He laid a wreath for the victims of the genocide, made a short speech, and read a prayer.[8][9] The Pope used the term Metz Yeghern (the Armenian word for genocide, which literally translates as "Great Crime") in his prayer, causing a controversy regarding whether he recognized the events of 1915 as a genocide or not.[10]

This move by the leader of the Roman Catholic Church aroused a wave of discontent in Turkey. On October 1, 2001, PanARMENIAN.Net stated that the "Turkish media expresses sorrows as Pope said the word "genocide" [on the] last day of his visit."[11]

Hillary Clinton's visit in 2010Edit

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Yerevan on July 4, on America's independence day, thus becoming the highest-ranked US official to visit the country. Her visit was considered "to be symbolic but nonetheless significant" and her possible visit to Tsitsernakaberd became a subject of much discussion in the Armenian media. The United States has not recognized the Armenian Genocide officially and by visiting the genocide memorial, many thought that by her visit, the United States sent a clear political message to Turkey.[12] She went to the memorial on July 5, 2010, before leaving for Tbilisi. The wreath that Clinton laid at the memorial read "From Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton" although it was first announced that her visit would be non-official.[13]

RefusalsEdit

Turkish President Abdullah Gül visited Armenia in September 2008 to attend a football match between the Armenian and Turkish national teams in Yerevan. Since the Turkish government denies the fact of genocide, he did not visit the memorial.[14] Other presidents who opted not to pay a visit to Tsitsernakaberd were Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Iranian Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.[15] They refused to visit the memorial so as not to compromise their bilateral relationship with neighboring Turkey.[16][17] In 2010, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, the Turkish President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, refused to visit the memorial stating, "it is my own decision. I respect your opinion and you should respect mine."[18]
