YEREVAN—On the third day of their visit to Armenia, the Kardashian sisters visited the Dzidzernagapert Armenian Genocide monument and laid wreaths at the eternal flame, in memory of the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian Genocide.

Kim Kardashian, who is traveling with her husband Kanye West and their daughter, North, was accompanied by her sister Khloe and cousins, Kourtni and Kara, at the Dzidzernagapert Memorial Complex.

On Thursday, the Kardashian entourage visited the Monastery of Geghart, after taking a stroll in Yerevan, where they took the escalators at Cascade up to the Mother Armenia statue.

Kim and Khloe also met with Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan, who welcome them to Armenia. The sisters told the prime minister that they would fight for the international recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide and pledged to learn the Armenian language.

The Kardashians arrived in Armenia Wednesday for an eight-day stay in the country, which is being taped for episodes of their popular E! Network reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

    Please don’t use this difficult word …
    I am Armenian and I can’t pronounce
    “Tsitsernakaberd”
    There are no many touchy, poetic letters in English to give it exact sound …
    It is not time to teach people our words
    It is time to tell our pains
    our lost clever grandfathers…
    Our sad stories heard in childhood years…
    our lost relatives
    our lost lands
    Our famous mount Ararat …Still stands in the hands of savages
    with its white peak like our good hearts…

    Call it “ETERNAL FIRE of the GENOCIDE”
    Which its flames must reach every site
    Even to the far other planets…
    To tell the world
    How savage Seljuk-Turks betrayed us–––
    A nation builded for them…Palaces …Mosques… Minarets…
    I keep asking… “where is god how he betrayed as …???

    “ETERNAL FIRE OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE” IN YEREVAN, ARMENIA

    Please don’t use this difficult word …
    I am Armenian and I can’t pronounce
    “Tsitsernakaberd”: in Eastern Armenian and Dzidzernagapert: in Westren Armenian…
    There are no many touchy, poetic letters in English to give its exact sound …

    It is not the time to teach people our poetic, imaginative words…!
    It is time to let them to recognize our pains
    About our lost clever grandfathers…
    Our sad, sarcastic stories heard in our childhood years…
    Our lost relatives
    Our lost lands
    Our destroyed Churches…Cathedral Schools…of 2600 of them
    Our famous mount Ararat …
    Still stands in the hands of savages
    With its white peak… like our honest hearts…

    Call it “ETERNAL FIRE of the GENOCIDE”
    Like many poets and painters wrote
    Mary Zakarian and others…

    The flames of it must reach every site
    Even to the far~far planets …arid deserts
    For the birds to hear our voice and sing with us…
    To return our lands

    We want to tell the world
    How savage Seljuk-Turks betrayed us–––
    A nation builded for them…
    Palaces …Mosques… Minarets…
    I keep asking…
    Where was our god for whom we builded so many homes
    and nothing left today …to anyone to pray there…?
