Hundreds Attend Monument Dedication

LOS ANGELES–A monument was unveiled Sunday under the auspices of Western Prelate Bishop Moushegh Mardirossian at Hollywood’s St. Garabed Church–dedicated to the memory of thousands of Armenia’s persecuted–deported and massacred in 1949 under Communist tyranny.

Following a solemn requiem Mass–hundreds flocked outside the church edifice to hear remarks by Prelate Mardirossian–following which the gathering moved to Garabedian hall where the crowd was addressed by Yervand Yeghiayan–Armen Donoyan and Svin Tchouldjyan.

Survivors of the exiles also presented eyewitness accounts and a cultural program followed.
