Deeply disturbed by the march in Yerevan, on January 1, 2024, echoing ‘Sieg Heil’ chants, non-resident ambassador of Israel to Armenia and Moldova Joel Lion wrote on X, Trend reports. “Glorifying Garegin Nzhdeh, a Nazi collaborator is unacceptable. Authorities must take a firm stand against any form of neo-nazism and antisemitism,” he noted. Neo-Nazis held a march in Yerevan in honor of the birthday of the Armenian Nazi Garegin Nzhdeh, who was subsequently convicted of collaborating with the Nazi Germany. The marchers chanted “Sieg Heil” slogan. Armenia stands first in the list of countries for most monuments, streets named in honor of Garegin Nzhdeh, who fought under the Nazi command against the USSR during the World War II. Nzdeh was the one who made sure the Armenian legion followed the orders of the Nazis, in particular in the Caucasus, Crimea and France. In 2016, a monument to the Nzhdeh was set up in the center of Yerevan. In addition to large centers such as Gyumri and Gafan, the memory of Nzhdeh is preserved in at least seventeen other settlements.
