Immediately after the German Bundestag’s vote on the Armenian Genocide, His Holiness Aram I, the Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, sent a letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, welcoming this brave step of historic significance.
His Holiness described the adoption of the bill recognizing the Armenian Genocide as a “vivid evidence of Germany’s commitment to human rights, as well as a message to the world, calling to demonstrate a responsible approach.”
The Catholicos reminded that the Great House of Cilicia is also a victim to the genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire against the Armenian people. He said they had to leave the Sis Catholicosate, which has a history of 700 years.
On behalf of the Armenian Apostolic Church and the Armenian people, Aram I expressed support to the struggle against injustice.
