To know your past, is to know yourself.

This is the most awful calamity which has befallen the Nestorian people in the ninety years of our mission work among them. About 1,000 had been killed and 2,000 had died of disease or fear up to the middle of March (1915), just in Urmia itself, and the Nestorians here estimate that perhaps as many more died on the flight to Russia or have died since. This would mean a fifth or a sixth of the 30,000 Nestorians who live on the Urmia plain. Their prosperous villages have all been pillaged and most of them burned, and their churches destroyed. Of the survivors, half are refugees in great want in the Caucasus, the rest remain in Urmia in conditions of peril and fear and need which wring one's heart.

— Rev. F. N. Jessup

AGHET: NATION-MURDER
Friday, December 10
Harvard University

Short Question Period After Screening with Director Eric Friedler
Free admission. (90mins, dubbed in English)

The new award-winning documentary made by German filmmaker Eric Friedler compellingly proves the truth of the genocide of the Armenian people. Using the actual words of 23 German, American and other nationals who witnessed the events, and armed with archival materials, "Aghet" expertly takes on the challenge that PM Erdogan hurled at the world by stating: "Prove it."
