Soghomon Tehlirian’s Legacy Honored in Armenia

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The Armenian Veterans Association organized a gathering in commemoration of Soghomon Tehlirian’s assassination of Talaat Pasha in Germany eighty years ago on March 15–1921. Talaat Pasha was one of the masterminds of the Armenian Genocide–and his assassination committed by Tehlirian was justified by German courts as an act of vengeance.

Hamlet Hovsepian–president of the Veterans Association–noted that all crimes committed against the Armenian nation must be punished regardless of when they occurred.

A detailed description of Soghomon Tehlirian’s efforts was presented by the association’s political secretary Samvel Haroutyounian.
