Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian laid flowers at the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex in Tsitsernakaberd, Yerevan
The ladies, headed back to their homeland along with two of Kourtney Kardashian‘s children, Kim Kardashian, Mason, nine, and Penelope, seven, to visit the memorial, which was built in 1967 and pay their respects to all those who lost their lives in the Armenian Genocide.
Kim Kardashian, 38, previously admitted Kim Kardashian is ‘saddened’ by the fact ‘not everyone has recognized that 1.5 million people were murdered’ by the Ottoman Empire in 1915.
The memorial is made up of twelve slabs, which are positioned in a circle and they represent the twelve lost provinces in Turkey.
An eternal flame is situated in the center, which is dedicated to those who lost their lives.
The Armenian ancestors are on Kardashian’s father’s side – his family emigrated to the United States from an area that now lies in Turkey.
Turkey denies the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians, in what is now Turkey, in 1915 at the height of World War One constitutes genocide and relations with Armenia are still blighted by the dispute.
Kim Kardashian recently witnessed her three younger children – Saint, three, Chicago, 20 months, and Psalm, four months, get baptized in her family’s ancestral homeland.
