AACHEN ( — 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.

    It is to be expected. Germany is not what it used to be. The nation is half way on the road to turkification.. The Turk influence permeates many areas of German society. Expect more Anatolian Turk migrants to flood Germany , thus increasing their critical mass , once turkey becomes ensnared in a civil conflict and a wider involvement in the Syrian Kurdish regions.

    Are the posters real or false ones? If they include the word “genocide” then they are directed for propaganda porpuses. No one has the authority to declare 1915 as genocide except an authorized court.

      Shut your mouth you animal Orhan. 1915 was certainly a Genocide, the only authorities that truly matter are Armenians, we know very well who is guilty of what and one day Turkey will be held accountable one way or another. Your time is limited.
