Many were left behind facing an unknown fate at the hands of the militants. Since then some have returned, but many have left the country all together for a safer life elsewhere and many more are still displaced across Kurdish controlled territories including in the Christian township of Ainkawa which has embraced overChristian refugees. Iraq was home to more than 1. But many left the country after systematic attacks on their neigh- borhoods in Baghdad and elsewhere.
Once a safe heaven for the Christians in the Middle East, the Iraqi capital has increasingly failed to protect the security of its nearly half a million Christian community, the majority of whom have migrated to Europe since According to reports from the office of Human Rights Committee in Kurd- istan Region, the number of Christians in Baghdad has decreased to around 90, over the past decade with many of the young Christians leaving for exile. The Iraqi government has in the past offered arms and combat training to Christian recruits who have vol- unteered to join a new force based in the disputed Nineveh province.
Also the Kurdish Peshmerga troops have patrolled large parts of the Nineveh Plains which include many Christian localities. For the time being, however, the Marqus family is planning to celebrate their third Easter in Alqosh together with other refugees and other Chris- tians in the town who have showed them support and offered comfort in exile.

But unlike the eastern side, the flow of civil- ians from the western half has been bigger, given the densely populated areas and inten- sified house-by-house fighting in old alleys. It depicted a grim picture of a lack in medical resources and the inability of ambulances to cope with the number of trauma victims and the long distances needed to transfer patients outside the city for further treatment.

Of those, suf- fered war-related trauma, of whom need- ed urgent lifesaving surgery. More than half of the wounded were women or children under the age of 15, it said.
Ahmed Sami, a spokesman for MSF-Iraq, said Thursday that the overall number of wounded from western Mosul could be much higher since the aid group only reported those it treated. Speaking from the U. An estimatedcivilians remain trapped in the historic sections of Mosul where Iraqi security forces have been slowly advancing, Geddo said.
He added that the civilians often have to weigh the risk of death by remaining behind in western Mosul, and the risk of get- ting killed while trying to flee.
Among those who safe- ly reached the govern- ment-controlled area was Alaa Saad Abdul-Rah- man, a year old fa- ther of two who decided to flee with his extended family when the fighting intensified in their Risala neighborhood. When they reached safety, he said he burst into tears. Associated Press writer Jamey Keaten in Ge- neva contributed to this story.

It is the most important na- tional festival handed down thru history from the remote past. The Assyrians of today all over the world celebrate this day as their national festival. Before Assyrians embraced Christian- ity in the first century A. This date is the very beginning of spring. Centuries before the fall of the Assyrian Empire in BC when its power and civilization spread all over the Middle East, other nations like Medes, Persians, and Ar- abs adopted and celebrated the 21st of March as the New Year for all the an- cient world.
After the Assyrians converted to Christianity in the first century and the Gregorian calendar was established in the Christian world, Assyrians also accepted the new calendar and moved their New Year from March 21st to April 1st. The beginning of spring is when nature wakes up from the winter sleep, and the trees, plants, fields and flowers begin to bloom again. This means new life in which the Assyr- ians of forefathers gave a great credit to their philosophy of creation. Revival and rising from death played a big role in mythology.
Assyrians of today celebrate the 1st of April by holding parades, parties, fes- tivals, lectures, and cultural programs. It started on March 21stwhich was the first day on month Nissan and beginning of the New Year on the Assyrian calendar. This festival was celebrated for 12 days. The tablets discovered and deci- phered by the archaeologists explain the festivities celebrated in those days.
InAssyria this festival was the most im- portant event of the year. People from all over the Empire came to either the political capital, Nineveh or the reli- gious capital, Babylon and participated in the celebration. Come and celebrate this new day with Assyrians. The music video will be premiered at the film festival. Both the song and the film tell the story of the founding of the Assyrian Church of the East by theApostle Thaddeus, who is known as Mar Addai in Aramaic.
King Abgar was an Assyrian king who ruled over the Syriac city-state of Edessa. The city of Edessa is now in Turkey and is known as Urfa or Sanliurfa. According to the ancient accounts, King Abgar had heard of the wonderful miracles performed by Jesus. As he was suffering from leprosy he sent a message to Jesus asking that He come and heal him.
Jesus responded to the king that He could not come at that time as it was necessary that He first fulfill his destiny, but that at a later date He would send one of his Apostles to come and heal the king from his disease.
After the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Apostle Thomas sent Thaddeus to go to the city of Edessa to share the message of Jesus. Thaddeus was called before the king and prayed for the king, who was then miraculously healed. Because of the miracle, the king converted to Christianity.
Afterwards, Thaddeus continued to minister among the Assyrian people in the region and thereby founded the Assyrian Church of the East. She is a classically trained soprano and has sung and acted on stages in the New York area as well as across the country and the world. Josiah Missick also plays the role of the Apostle Thaddeus.

Some people believe that the Shroud of Turin is the Holy Image of Edessa, but that it was folded up and displayed as a portrait. Shroud researchers contend that the Shroud is the same image known as the Mandylion or the Holy Image of Edessa. It was taken from Edessa by the Byzantines and may have been stolen from Constantinople during the Sacking of Byzantium and from there made its way to Turin, Italy. Stephen Missick, who has written on the history of the Assyrian Church of the East for the Journal of Assyrian Academic Studies, wrote the original script for the film.
Efforts need to be made to protect theAssyrians, but efforts also need to be made to tell the Assyrian story so that the Assyrian Christian heritage can be passed down to future generations. Hopefully, this film will create greater awareness of the Assyrian people and the Assyrian Christian heritage.

There is no museum left. It is a haunted place, and its walls have become black facades covered with dust and smoke. IS militants stole all the small antiquities, taking what they could carry. They did not spare the heavier items, which they destroyed with axes or set on fire. Atheel al-Nujaifi told reporters on Feb. The story of the Mosul Museum is just one in a series of tragedies during the bitter wars that shook Iraq since the s, leaving it with a legacy of looting, destruction and robbery.
The National Museum in Baghdad was looted inand many of its contents were de- stroyed, while many historical sites suffered illegal excavations, their antiquities stolen and sold. Init reopened to visi- tors. He reported that the General Commission of Antiquities is working to find the resources including funding and technical support needed to restore the museum. The management has already requested fund- ing from the federal and local governments to start the work.
A group of interna- tional and Iraqi experts will visit Mosul Mu- seum, as they all agree on the importance of restoring it to preserve international cultural heritage. Many Assyrians have been killed by ISIS and their property destroyed because of their Christian faith, which dates back more than a thousand years.
We love this country and believe in it. They helped me make a contribution and a life here. Our institute is going to help our Assyrian art com- munity do that. If Americans can appreciate their story, Assyrians can appreciate that.
That will be the validation they are seeking here. The book aims to provide more in- formation on the cultural heritage of the Assyrian Empire, to raise con- sciousness, shine a light on the global history and relay the cultural richness of the region to future generations.

The most crucial area is the garrison town, the city center belonging to theAssyrian pe- riod. There are large palaces and mansions on the top level of the city center while there are administrative buildings and warehouses in the low- er city. The city is also sur- rounded by city walls. He announced the establishment of these garri- sons with epi- graphs he built. We also un- derstand from a tablet that Tusshan was demolished in B. This is a state that was alive between and B.
He further noted that the Assyrians had transferred all their outputs in arts, architec- ture and daily life to the region. They have established a small model of their capital at Tusshan.
Therefore, the antiques, grave gifts and small ob- jects used in daily life resemble the examples from Assyrian capitals.

Buildings with large backyards with floors covered with mosaics were unearthed. We found rich gifts buried under the floors of graves. In the excavations, the graves be- longing to senior executives and palace workers buried in the backyards of As- syrian palaces were discovered.
Plus, certain hints to before and after the settlement of the Assyrian empire were also revealed.
There are traces of both settled cul- tures and also nomadic societies at Tusshan. After stating how glad he was to be in Turkey and especially in Istanbul, Dr.

The original winged bull, a protective deity known as the Lamassu, stood from about BC at a gate of the an- cient city of Nineveh on the outskirts of the modern-day Iraqi city of Mosul, a former ISIS stronghold now being be- sieged by Iraqi forces.
The bull was destroyed by the militants along with other artefacts in Mosul Mu- seum. As part of a US-led coalition, Britain participated in the invasion of Iraq injustified at the time by allegations that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The Iraq war became deeply unpopu- lar over time in Britain, and many crit- ics of then Prime Minister Tony Blair have blamed the invasion and its bloody aftermath for the later rise of ISIS.
Blair has resisted this interpreta- tion of events. Rakowitz started working in on a project in which he uses recycled Middle Eastern food packaging to rec- reate artefacts damaged or destroyed during the looting of the Iraq Museum in Baghdad in He now also in- cludes objects destroyed by IS.
It has been the scene of countless official celebrations and ceremonies, but is also a venue of choice for mass protests. The Fourth Plinth was erected in to display an equestrian statue, but money ran out and it remained empty for years until a programme of spe- cial commissions was launched.
As part of the Chicago-based interactive cooking project, Zomaya hosts popular cooking classes with Assyriologists from the Uni- versity of Chicago to share 6, years of Assyrian culinary tradition with her students. This Chicago native wants the local culinary scene to know that Assyrians, descendants of one of the oldest civilizations in the world dat- ing back to BC in Mesopotamia, still exist, and their food is both ancient and delicious.
Zomaya sat down with Chicago to discuss what we can learn from the past and how she makes the ancient new again. What sparked your dive into researching the world of ancient recipes?
I never thought people would be interested in learning how to cook authentic ancient foods that Assyrian families enjoy daily. What have these three clay tablets taught the world about ancient diets? Assyrian kings recorded details of their lives on tablets that would often be found on the walls of an entrance to a pal- ace. These very self-absorbed kings, through their vanity, pre- served a window into the history of food and its preparation in ancient Mesopotamia.
The Yale Tablets, which are housed at Yale University, include Akkadian cuneiform [an an- cient writing system] that describes 40 recipes dating back to BC. The recipes were for master chefs in the royal court—mere lists of ingredients with minimal instruction. Today, we often look back at the ancient world and wonder, were the ancients really as evolved as we are in terms of diet? Jean Bottero, a French Assyriologist who was also an accom- plished gourmet chef, says the answer is yes.
Their advancement in combining refined flavors and elements into rich dishes was unique, and they had an obsessive love of onions that contin- ues to this day in Assyrians.
Describe to us the connection between the old and the new in Assyrian food. Throughout my culinary journey, I became fascinated with how little Assyrian food has changed over 6, years.
You can say it is a cultural food heritage with a natural, healthy focus on vegetables and grains, such as barley, once an ancient form of currency, as well as herbs, fermented dairy products, and pickles.
What are some examples of these ancient foods that you could find Assyrians enjoying today? We can see the influence our people picked up as they fled to countries like Iran, Syria, or even America to escape persecution. The meat pie, similar to the popular Turkish pide, was at the time made with fowl, shallots, roasted dill seeds, and other ingredients. Another favorite of the ancients was kibbeh. Whether it is cooked in a tomato stew, as a fried meat-stuffed torpedo, or a flat pie filled with meat and pine nuts, kibbeh was enjoyed by the ancient Assyrians.
Kibbeh pots were used by an- cient Assyrians, and the word kibbeh itself is an ancient Akkadian word that was introduced into Aramaic, two of the root languages for modern day Assyrian.
Where in Chicago can din- ers find authentic Assyrian food? I hope one day I see an au- thentic Assyrian restaurant in Chicago, so I have one place I can to point to, to say this is us, this is our culinary heri- tage on a plate. But to really taste our food, you need to make your way into the heart of an Assyrian family, which is the dining table.
