“It Is False” Tagged On Statue Of Komitas & Armenian Genocide Victims Memorial In Paris.

The words “it is false” were tagged on the plinth of the Komitas statue – Armenian Genocide Memorial in Paris, France on Sunday, August 30, sources in Paris, France inform Zartonk Media.

The Armenian Embassy in France condemns in the strongest terms the denialist desecration of the statue of Father Komitas in Paris dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide as well as the Armenian fighters and resistance fighters who died for France.

Komitas was an Armenian priest, musicologist, composer, arranger, singer, and choirmaster, who is considered the founder of the Armenian national school of music. He is recognized as one of the pioneers of ethnomusicology. The statue was unveiled in 2003.

The Monument in homage to Komitas is a commemorative monument to the victims of the 1915 Armenian Genocide and to the Armenian fighters who died for France. It consists of a statue of Komitas, located Cours Albert 1 Paris, France, between the Pont des Invalides and the Grand Palais, in Paris.

The statue is six-meters-high and was made by David Babayan – Yerevantsi, representing Komitas, Armenian priest and musicologist, survivor of the Armenian genocide and refugee in France. The installation of the work was unanimously approved by the Paris council on January 29, 2001, the day that France recognized the Armenian genocide. It was inaugurated in 2003.

France’s Haiastan Media said “This is a new attack on the Armenian community even as France and the French political class unanimously denounced the words of Gray Wolf Ahmet Cetin.”
