The attempted genocide of Armeneans, Kurds and Syrian Christians that took place in the early part of the twentieth century is one of the most undocumented and unfamiliar genocides of the twentieth century among Western societies. However, the tragic memories of these events live on within the surviving communities through the testimonies of those who experienced the atrocities first hand. The present work is the account of the atrocities that happened among the Christians at Tur Abdin by A. Naman Karabash. Karabash was just a small boy at the time of the events, but he recounts his own experiences, and those of others, with stirring detail. This volume is the German translation of Karabash's work carried out by George Toro and Amill Gorgis, and it includes a foreword by Julius Yeshu Çiçek.

Collection of Historical Documents in Relation with the Syriac Orthodox Community in the Late Period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

A Syriac Lexicon

A Translation from the Latin, Correction, Expansion, and Update of C. Brockelmann’s Lexicon Syriacum
ISBN: 978-1-60724-620-6
The second edition of Carl Brockelmann’s Lexicon Syriacum, published in 1928, is a highly reputable Syriac dictionary. However, its Latin language and the ordering of words according to triliteral Semitic roots make its use difficult for most students and scholars. This revised edition by Sokoloff renders meanings in English, arranges words alphabetically, and includes many useful tools on a CD.
