On June 30, the delegation headed by the Federal Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development of the Federal Republic of Germany Svenja Schulze, who arrived in Armenia on a two-day visit, visited the Armenian Genocide Memorial, accompanied by the Deputy Minister of Economy of Armenia Armen Arzumanyan, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Germany to Armenia Victor Richter and the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Armenia to Germany Victor Yengibaryan.
The guests were welcomed by the Deputy Scientific Director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Edita Gzoyan, who presented the story of the 3 khachkars placed in Tsitsernakaberd Park and dedicated to the memory of the Armenians who perished during the ethnic cleansing of the Armenian population within Azerbaijan at the end of the last century.
Edita Gzoyan accompanied the German guests to the Memory Wall, behind which the relics of foreign public figures, politicians, and missionaries are being interred, who raised their voice of protest against the Armenian Genocide carried out by the Turkish government. The members of the delegation were particularly interested in the pro-Armenian activities of the German missionary Johannes Lepsius, carried out from the years of the Hamidian massacres until the end of his life in 1926.
Mrs. Svenja Schulze laid a wreath at the Genocide Monument, and then the members of the accompanying delegation laid flowers at the Eternal Fire and observed a minute of silence in memory of the innocent martyrs of the Armenian Genocide.
