Preface

The Hakkâri Massacres

An anthology of documents related to massacres and deportations of Assyrians in northern Mesopotamia

Ethnic Cleansing by Turkey
1924-25

This book consists of a collection of documents concerning the deportation and massacres of the “Nestorian” Assyrians (but also “Jacobites” and “Chaldeans”) in 1924-25, and the boundary dispute between Iraq and Turkey which affected the Assyrians in the extreme.

I decided to reorganise and reprint this anthology, primarily because the first edition of 2009 had a very limited print run. Also, the discovery of new documents and information necessitated a new edition.

The events that transpired in Hakkâri were tantamount to a crime against humanity and the Turkish Republic was responsible for this crime. The officers and soldiers who took part in the deportation and committed despicable acts, such as massacres, rape and looting, all belonged to the 62nd Regiment of the Turkish infantry. It was therefore an act committed by the regular army, which was sent by the Ankara Government for this purpose.

The historiographers, as named in the book, who consciously tried to misinform the Turkish public in relation to the atrocities that the army committed, can be regarded as complicit after the fact.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
