To know your past, is to know yourself.

The story of the Assyrians is not one of which the British can be proud. Had we not afforded them protection and help, their situation might, it is true, be worse than it is today. But everyone who reads General Browne's moving account must feel that here indeed is a debt of honour which it would be shameful to leave unpaid.

— British Brigadier-General J. G. Browne
The Assyrians: A Debt of Honour, 1937

United Nations: International Mother Language Day

February 21

International Mother Language Day was proclaimed by UNESCO's General Conference in November 1999.

The International Day has been observed every year since February 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism.

Languages are the most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage. All moves to promote the dissemination of mother tongues will serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue.
