The efforts made by Henri Saby particularly in the issue of recognizing the Armenian Genocide in the world are particularly great. Due to these efforts the European Council accepted the formula denouncing the Armenian Genocide. In 2011 Henri Saby was awarded with «Mkhitar Gosh» order. In his will Henri Saby expressed a desire to have his remains burried in France, in Armenia and in Artsakh. In Yerevan his remains are buried in the city Pantheon.
