This book is a history of modern Assyrians in pictures. It includes 140 entries of significant people, places and events going back to the 19th century. While some are more significant than others, they are all interesting. Assyrian history does not exist in a nutshell. It is part of the history of other nations and that is why non-Assyrian items are included. The modern day Assyrians are the heirs to the legacy of a great ancient empire. As Christians, they carried on the greatest missionary enterprise in world history. During WWI many Assyrians perished in the genocide organized by the Ottoman Empire and most of the survivors were scattered from their homelands. But despite all the hardships Assyrians have endured, they still uphold their customs and traditions and speak their native language. They are truly indestructible. The main object in compiling this book is to preserve a knowledge of places, peoples and events from the not too distant past for the benefit of future... More > generations of Assyrians.< Less
