Pictured is a mother and child, killed by Ottoman forces in Eastern Anatolia in 1916, the daughter, cradled into her mother's arms. The Assyrian Genocide is a crime against not just the Ottoman government and it's Turkish successor, but a crime against humanity itself.
To this day, the Turkish government still denies the crimes against not just the Assyrians, but the Greeks, and Armenians that also suffered the wrath of the CUP (Young Turks) government.
Assyrians call the Genocide "seyfo," which means sword.
