As we mourn the loss of Prof. Getatchew, we are comforted by the planned services and events being held by various organizations to commemorate his life. See below for these programs. This page will be updated with future services as details are provided so please be sure to bookmark and visit again.
At his home office, Minnesota, 2013
The ECMAA will be dedicating a portion of their annual remembrance on the Battle of Adwa and Yekatit 12 on March 6th at 2:30 EST to honor the life of Prof. Getatchew. This annual event was hugely important to him, and he worked tirelessly to seek reparations from Italy for the brutal massacres inflicted on the Ethiopian people.
In ECMAA's own words:
Prof. Haile participated as a guest speaker in ECMAA’s panel on Yekatit 12 Martyrs Memorial Day event in 2018. He elaborated on the unforgettable massacre by Graziani’s troops on February 19, 1937, in Addis Ababa and the surrounding area. He spoke about the importance of Ethiopians commemorating this day together, in the spirit of fraternity to pay respect to our forefathers who fought and died for our freedom. He encouraged ECMAA to keep the annual Yekatit 12 commemoration program.
