Armenia’s in Georgia Mark Genocide

(A-Info/Civil Georgia)–The southern Georgian region of Javakhk commemorated on April 23 and 24 the 91st anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

Members of the community marched on Sunday through the streets of Akhaltsikhe and Ninotsminda–in an event organized by the Zori Zoryan youth association.

The next morning–on April 24–Javakhk’s churches held a requiem mass for the 1.5 million victims of the Genocide. Representatives of the community–local officials–and several organizations placed wreaths in honors of the victims at a memorial dedicated to the Armenian genocide.

Representatives of the Armenian community in Georgia also gathered outside the Turkish Embassy in Tbilisi on April 24 to demand recognition of the Genocide.
