February 22, 2013 | 09:28

“Nouvelles d`Arménie” informed that on February 20, with the initiative of the Armenian members of the French Resistance Movement and the National Association of Veterans and the “Israeli Military Chaplains” organization, an event devoted to the 69th anniversary of Manushyan group’s execution took place at the Military Synagogue of Paris.
 
After the warm welcome speech of the Chief Military Jewish Chaplain and Rabbi of the Synagogue Hayim Korsi in the overcrowded hall, president of the French Resistance Movement and the National Association of Veterans Antuan Baghdikyan has reminded that by paying tribute to the memory of Manushyan group with Rabbi Korsi, Armenians and Jews create a culture of fraternity and solidarity of oppressed nations that have suffered a genocide.
   
He has remembered the US Ambassador Henry Morgenthau, who was the witness of the Armenian Genocide and has saved whole villages. That famous Jew has written in his memoirs about the expressions of one of the 3 organizers of the Armenian Genocide – Talaat. “Why should we lose all this treasures, anyway no Armenian will remain alive”. Antuan Baghdikyan has stressed the names of numerous other respectful Jews.

At the end, one of the members of Manushyan group, 95 years old Arsen Chakayan has introduced his book-proof where he is telling about the Resistance Movement participants’ epopee, the penetration of the traitor there and the execution of his 23 friends.
