AACHEN (Tert.am) — A group of unidentified individuals in Germany have vandalized items that were part of the Armenian Genocide exhibition.
In a statement on Wednesday, the German-Armenian Society (Deutsch-Armenische Gesellschaft) says that the assault was committed on January 20.
The items were on display at a college in the town of Aachen which hosted the exhibition “1915-2015: Armenian Architecture and Genocide.” It was arranged as part of an exhibition series entitled “Fatherland.”
The police have been on the incident.
The Society’s president, Raffi Kantian, described the recent assault as unbelievable, noting that the exhibition had been held successfully without incidents in different cities and town across Germany.
The Society says it is still critical of a protest note released earlier by two Aachen-based groups which expressed the Turkish authorities’ position and blamed the Society of being biased. “But the vandalism by unknown individuals is totally unacceptable.
