To know your past, is to know yourself.

Disasters now fell on the Assyrians. They first lost their wise and brave leader, the Patriarch, Benjamin d'Mar Shimun. He was advised to make an agreement with a Kurdish chief, Ismail Agha of Shekak, called Simko, or the little man. This man received the Patriarch at his house, and had him shot down as he left, apparently thinking he would please the Persians by so doing. It is satisfactory to know that he gained nothing by his act. The Persians repudiated him, the Turks wished to execute him. The Assyrians, to avenge their Patriarch, marched against Simko, seized his town and burnt it. He escaped, but lived as a hunted man for twelve years and was finally shot by Persians in 1930. Polus d'Mar Shimun, the Patriarch's brother, was elected Patriarch. Then came the second disaster.
