EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT HOSTS ARMENIAN ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION
Sept 28 2004
BRUSSELS, SEPTEMBER 28, ARMENPRESS: The Forum of Armenian Organizations
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 the opening ceremony was attended by
members of the European Parliament, European Commission, members of
the Belgian government and foreign diplomats.
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.
