An Armenian Khachkar In Wroclaw

A traditional Armenian Khachkar in Wroclaw stands at a crossroad right next to the church of St. Wojciech on Janitzky Street. The church has two entrances – one from the street of the Divine Body and the other from the Pesochnaya street.

This Khachkar was erected on September 21, 2012, during the Days of Armenia. In addition to the memory of the Genocide, it was dedicated to the Armenians living in Poland and in the territory of Kresy (this is how areas of Western Ukraine and Western Belarus are called in Poland) in the 20th century.
