When tragic events that threaten the very existence of an entire group of people occur, it is extremely important to record the experiences of those who survived these events. The record of these accounts helps keep them alive in the memories of those who live long after the events occur, and the recounting of the events helps to ensure that they will not happen again. The present volume is a collection of poems recounting the suffering of the Christians in Turkey, particularly those at Tur Abdin. While the poems cover a broad historical period, the majority of these poems are dedicated to the atrocities of the attempted genocide of 1915.

    Collection of Historical Documents in Relation with the Syriac Orthodox Community in the Late Period

    The Register of Mardin MS 1006
    ISBN: 978-1-60724-994-8
    In the Ottoman Empire, Syriac communities kept their own baptismal books, marriage, funeral and other records and many of these can be found in various libraries, churches, monasteries in the West and East. The Syriac Garšūnī manuscript found in the Church of the Forty Martyrs in Mardin contains several lists of different subjects that go back to the late period of the Ottoman Empire. These lists, published here for the first time with annotations, are an important historical source for the social, economic, cultural and religious history of the Near East during the 19th century.
