To know your past, is to know yourself.

At the time when Iraq was admitted to membership of the League of Nations in 1932, the League Council had referred to the Mandates Commission certain petitions which had been received from the Assyrians and Kurds; but in view of the fact that the Treaty between Britain and Iraq, governing the termination of the mandate, included a draft declaration containing guarantees to cover the protection of minorities, Iraq was admitted before the Mandates Commission had prepared its Report.

— British Brigadier-General J. G. Browne

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.
