PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian community in Germany’s Baden-Württemberg land held an event to commemorate the victims of Armenian pogroms in Sumgait and other Azerbaijani cities.

Organized jointly with European Artsakh Center, Maral organization and Armenian-German cultural societies, the event took place in one of central churches in Stuttgart on March 23.

Father Tiratur, priest of Baden-Württemberg’s Armenian community spoke at the event and served a mass afterwards, European Artsakh Center reports.

Permanent representative of Artsakh Republic in Germany Harutyun Grigoryan told about Armenian pogroms and other atrocities of Azerbaijani authorities, as well as the situation that emerged due to lack of international condemnation of crimes committed by Azerbaijan’s government.
