Armenian Genocide Memorial

The Armenian Genocide Memorial was erected on November 2, 2007 in the public garden of the Temple of Peace in the Civic Centre of Cardiff.  

It is a rectangular monument that made from St Bees Stone from Cumbria, which resembles the pink Tufa Stone of Armenia. There is an Inscription, Cross and Ronde on it.

According to journalism student Cho Kiu Yeung, this memorial gave Welsh government’s official recognition of the genocide. At first, the UK government did not want to use the word genocide. However, in 2007 the National Assembly gave some land at the Temple of Peace and allowed the word ‘genocide’ to be used on the memorial.
