Letter to Knesset

Jewish Community of ArmeniaDear Members of Knesset!


In the international Holocaust Remembrance Day, we - the members of the Jewish Community of Armenia and all those gathered in Yerevan at a monument devoted to the victims of the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide, bow our heads before the innocent victims who have died in the flames of the Holocaust.
We Remember! That is what is written on our monument.
Lessons of the Holocaust cannot be left in the past and we cannot forget the lessons of the Armenian Genocide, this unprecedented manifestation of evil and inhuman hatred.
We urge you, dear deputies, to intensify efforts to recognize the Armenian Genocide that took place in Ottoman Turkey, which will help to restore historical justice to the people whose fate is so similar to the fate of the Jewish people.
This will prove to the world the power, wisdom and independence of the State of Israel.
This year has been declared as a year of memory of children - victims of the Holocaust. Children of all nations should live in peace without any threat, keeping the memory of the innocent victims of all genocides. We are responsible to them for all our decisions.
We add our voice to the voice of Israel and the Jewish people who said - "Never again! ".

Chairman of the Jewish Community of Armenia
Rima Varzhapetyan (Feller)
