The Genocide Memorial Complex is a moving site commemorating the victims of tragic massacres of Azerbaijanis committed by Bolshevik-Dashnak forces in various parts of Azerbaijan, including Guba, in 1918.

Construction of the complex was prompted by a mass burial discovered here in 2007, part of which is also exhibited.
