Inscription on Reflecting Pool

 

"Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have offered hope and refuge for

immigrants looking to begin new lives.

This park is a gift to the people of the Commonwealth and the City of Boston

from the Armenian-American community of Massachusetts.

The sculpture is offered is offered in honor of the one and one-half million victims of the

Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923.

May it serve in remembrance of all genocides that have followed, and

celebrate the diversity of communities that have re-formed in the safety of these shores."
