Articles > Armenians in Europe > Over five thousand Armenians live in Switzerland


Over 5000 people live today in the Armenian community of Switzerland. Here they are engaged in different things; most of the Armenians, however, earn through goldsmithery.


Jean Pierre Sedef is one of the latest additions to the Swiss Armenian community. He told "Radiolur" correspondent Nvard Davtyan that he has the largest wedding saloon in Switzerland. He moved from France to Switzerland, as it is easier to live here.


"Local Armenians are more open, far from politics and party games," Jean Pierre Sedef says. However, Armenians see their great role in the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by Switzerland.


Armenian scientists work at the European Nuclear Research Center in Geneva.  President of the Union of Armenians of Switzerland Vahe Gabrash is delighted with the Armenian scientists.


"It seems that the issue of preservation of the native language is under threat here. There is only one Armenian school in Geneva," Vahe Gabrash told our correspondent.
