“Red Terror” Martyrs’ Memorial Museum, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The “Red Terror” Martyrs’ Memorial Museum in Addis Ababa was established in 2010 as a memorial to the victims of the Red Terror under the Derg regime.

In the museum various torture instruments are displayed. In addition, original skulls and bones, coffins, bloody clothes, and photographs of victims are exhibited.

Tours are given for free where a museum guide will go through the exhibits and explain the history leading up to the Red Terror (starting from Haile Selassie‘s 80th birthday celebration). The tour guide will explain the atrocious actions done towards citizens who opposed the Derg, how prisoners were treated and how they secretly communicated among each other.”

Vank Catherdral, Isfahan, Iran

Holy Savior Cathedral (Armenian: Սուրբ Ամենափրկիչ Վանք, Surp Amenaprgich Vank; Persian: کلیسای وانک or آمنا پرکیج, Kelisa-ye Vank or Amenapergich‎‎; ), also known as Vank Cathedral and The Church of the Saintly Sisters, is a cathedral in Isfahan, Iran. Vank means “monastery” or “convent” in the Armenian language.

Construction is believed to have begun in 1606 by the first arrivals,[2] and completed with major alterations to design between 1655 and 1664 under the supervision of Archbishop David. The cathedral consists of a domed sanctuary, much like a Persian mosque, but with the significant addition of a semi-octagonal apse and raised chancel usually seen in western churches. The cathedral’s exteriors are in relatively modern brickwork and are exceptionally plain compared to its elaborately decorated interior.”
