Perhaps the Armenians are playing catchup with Azerbaijan. One finds the face of Mahmad Amin Resulzade on the Azerbaijani 1000 manet bill, a statue of him in Baku, Baku State University is named after him as is a high school in Ankara, Turkey. Resulzade was in Berlin during WWII, encouraging Azerbaijani POWs to fight for Nazi Germany after the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Hussein, approved the formation of Muslim Turkic battalions. This resulted in the formation of the Kaukasisch-Mohammedanische Legion as part of Htler's Osttürkischer Waffen-Verband der SS, which was sent to Poland where it fought the Polish Home Army during the Warsaw uprising, being attached to the SS-Regiment Dirlewanger.
Note: The Garegin Nzhdeh "event" has been posted on various Azerbaijani embassy sites, thus, the tone of my response.
