European Parliament Hosts Armenian Architecture Exhibition
The Armenian Assembly of Europe launched at the European Parliament on September 27 an exhibition, titled Armenian Architecture Heritage in the South Caucasus and Middle East. Armine Grigorian, the chairwoman of the Forum, told ArmenPress that members of the European Parliament, European Commission, members of the Belgian government and foreign diplomats attended the opening ceremony.
Four sections of the display feature Armenian architectural monuments in these regions as they go through different historical periods and aims also to predict their future.
The main focus is on Armenian architectural monuments scattered across Turkey, a great majority of which was also subjected to "genocide" alongside with annihilation of Armenians in 1915 and later. The major objective of the exhibition is to draw European officials' attention to what a country desires to join their ranks.
The exhibition will be displayed in different European parliaments to be timed with the 90-th anniversary of the genocide in 2005.
