19:54, 04.03.2012 Region: World News, Armenia Theme: Politics

In memory of the Armenian pogroms in Sumgait and other Azerbaijani towns in 1988, the “European Center for Artsakh (Karabakh)” and the “Genocide Recognition Committee” German NGOs, together with Berlin’s two Armenian communities, held a demonstration in the German capital, and under the slogan: “This shall not happen again.”      

And in the ensuing commemoration event, which was held at Berlin’s Saint Louis Church, addresses were delivered by Nagorno-Karabakh Republic’s Permanent Representative in Germany, Harutyun Grigoryan; Armenia’s Ambassador to Armenia, Armen Martirosyan; and several others.     

Also, a church service was held in memory of the innocent victims.
