Armenian Genocide Memorial

Lyon Armenian Genocide Memorial (French: Memorial Lyonnais du genocide des Armeniens) was erected in 2006 in central Lyon, France in memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 and the following years. The memorial is located near Place Bellecour, the main square of Lyon. It was designed by Leonardo Basmadyian and includes 36 white concrete pieces supported by stones from Armenia. Poems of Kostan Zarian are written on the concrete pieces. The cost of the memorial is around 180,000 euros, over two-thirds of which was provided by the Armenian community of Lyon. The rest was given by the Lyon Municipality and actively supported by Mayor Gérard Collomb.
