Belgium, Liège: A new monument dedicated to the Assyrian(Syriac) Genocide

Syriac Institute of Belgium | Press Release - July 20, 2013.

BELGIUM, Liège — After Australia, America, Armenia and France, this time it is in Liège in Belgium that a new memorial dedicated to the Assyrian(Syriac)1 Genocide Seyfo is erected. This monument is at the initiative of the Syriac Institute of Belgium and Seyfo Center.

Seyfo literally means "sword" in the Syriac language and refers to the genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire in 1915 against all Christians in the territory corresponding to present-day Turkey. Two thirds to three quarters of the three people involved - Assyrians(Syriacs), Armenians and Pontic Greeks - were decimated.

Moushé Malke, an Assyrian(Syriac) world-renowned artist, carved a killed dove on a stone of 12 tons! It will include a writing in French and Syriac in memory of the victims of Seyfo. The Assyrian(Syriac) genocide monument will be erected on the site of the Sanctuary of Banneux, near Liege, Belgium. Enjoying a special status and international fame, this place is visited by over a million people a year.

The official inauguration of the monument will be held on August 4, 2013 at 13:00 Banneux. The final preparations for the opening ceremony are still going to host hundreds of participants from around the world.

We invite all Democrats and Progressives to this opening ceremony of the Seyfo monument.

On behalf of the Syriac Institute of Belgium and Seyfo Center,

1. Several names are used to designate the Assyrian(Syriac) people. The term “Assyrian(Syriac)” is used as a synonym of the other names like Assyrian, Aramean, Chaldean, Syriac or Assyro-Chaldean-Syriac.

Seyfo-monument – Invigningsceremoni och intervjuer

Den 4 augusti invigdes Seyfo-monumentet i Liege, Belgien. Invigningsceremonin lockade ca 1500 assyrier som kom med bilar och bussar från Tyskland, Belgien, Holland, Frankrike och Schweiz. På plats fanns assyrier som kom från Sverige, USA och Australien för att närvara denna historiska dag. Seyfo-monumentet välsignades av biskop Polycarpus Augin Aydin från Holland och andra närvarande präster. Pilgrimsorten Banneaux besöks årligen av miljoner människor från hela världen. Under två månader arbetade konstnären Moshe Malke med den 12 ton tunga minnesstenen. Redan från första dagen uppmärksammades Seyfo-monumentet av många nyfikna turister. Den konstnärligt uppförda minnesstenen kommer med största sannolikhet att locka till sig människor från hela världen.
