“APRIL 24 WILL BE THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE REMEMBRANCE DAY IN FRANCE”- EMMANUEL MACRON


12.10.2018


On October 11, within the framework of his visit to “Charles Aznavour” residence in Yerevan the President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron, accompanied by his wife, Brigitte Macron, highlighted Aznavour's struggle for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide and designated April 24 to be the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day in France.

“I can’t find the words to describe what we felt this morning at the Armenian Genocide Memorial. The one who knows France since 1915 condemned the Genocide through the voice of Anatol Franc, send his third naval crew to save thousands of people. The one who fought for the recognition of the Genocide by law in France in 2001.

Together with the Diaspora we will continue Charles Aznavour's struggle for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the international community. That struggle is the struggle of France, it will never end, because to remember the genocides, look at their faces by condemning their hell, would mean creating conditions to avoid their repetition. I have promised that, and my promise will be fulfilled until the next April 24. This day will be designated as the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day in France.” These are the words of the President of France.

Before the visit to "Charles Aznavour" residence, the French President had been at the Armenian Genocide Museum, where he wrote a note in the book of Honorable Guests. It is with gravity and emotion that we are here today. On behalf of France, I respectfully pay tribute to those who have fallen with “eyes full of sunshine”, those who “only wanted to live”. France denounced the genocide of 1915 by the intellectuals. France welcomed children and families who had fled the genocide and made our Nation bigger. France will never forget and carry the fight for truth and recognition. This sad resignation. For those who have fallen. For our generations and those to come.
