Children of Lebanese-Armenian Relief Cross join “Millions of Armenian children were not born as a result of the Armenian Genocide” Program

The children of the Lebanese-Armenian Relief Cross have joined the “Millions of Armenian children were not born as a result of the Armenian Genocide” Program of the RA Ministry of Diaspora, which is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

The children have taken photos near the Armenian Genocide monument located in Bikfaya, Lebanon.

We urge all schools and organizations of the Armenia and the Diaspora to join this pan-Armenian program. All you have to do is to print a sign with the words “Millions of Armenians were not born as a result of the Armenian Genocide”, give it to a child and take a photo of the child with the sign near an Armenian Genocide monument (if possible) in the place of residence.

Our goal is to have this protest of 1.5 million children become a stigma for the Turks.

The photos are posted on the Facebook page for this program.

Reference: The Armenian Genocide monument in Bikfaya is placed in the area near the Armenian monastery of the Catholicosate of Cilicia. Construction began in 1960, and the monument opened on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on April 24, 1965 as a sign of the renaissance of the Armenian nation and as a sign of gratitude to the Lebanese people.

The monument was built through the combined efforts of the Lebanese-Armenian community and the Armenian Apostolic Church of Lebanon. The designer and architect is Zaven Khdshian.

During the Lebanese civil war, the monument was bombed, and the lower part of it was damaged. In 1993, Hovsep Khacherian restored the monument.

The 5 meter high bronze monument portrays a woman with hands stretching towards the sky.
