April 24 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the Assyrian Genocide (Sayfo), a state-led campaign of ethnic and religious cleansing. Today the world remembers. Today the world declares that the Ottomans’ systematic extermination of Assyrians, Armenians, and Pontic Greeks was a human catastrophe of epic scale. Two weeks ago Pope Francis said that this slaughter of Christians by the Ottoman government constituted the first genocide of the 20th century.

 

And today Assyrian Christians are yet again at risk of extermination in their homeland, now at the hands of ISIS and Islamic terrorists.

 

Today, together with our supporters and our people around the world, the Assyrian Aid Society of America remembers all those who perished.
