Red Terror Martyrs Memorial Museum provides a powerful reminder of the scale of atrocity during the Red Terror massacres under the Derg Regime. Established in 2010 to memorialize the 500,000 victims of the late 1970s violent Marxist political campaign, the museum educates visitors about the events leading up to and including the massacre. Learn the history of the government's assault on its own people through artifacts from mass graves, torture instruments, and a harrowing collection of photographs of those who perished. Some areas include little signage, but a tour guide will add an in-depth history to accompany the displays.
