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. The main feature is an excellent museum detailing how the massacres unfolded in each province through archival documents, photos, maps, statistics and personal stories. Construction of the complex was prompted by a mass burial discovered here in 2007, part of which is also exhibited.
