Making of the music video short documentary:

For this group the most interesting aspect of the music video is perhaps the winter drone footage of Ani.

In the doco Sirusho says that to make her two previous visually stunning ethnographic music videos she wanted to shoot them in Ani. But the risks posed by Turkey were too great, especially for a full professional production crew. For the Der Zor video, her crew made the collective decision to take the risk. They crossed into Western Armenia, shot in Ani what they could and withdrew. The rest was shot in Los Angeles.

The song is about parents telling children to never forget. Der Zor is the desert region of Syria used by the Young Turks in 1915 as a killing field for civilians.
