This Thesis analyzes the religious, linguistic and historical background of the genocide of the Assyrians. Through a meticulous, though, coherent presentation of the Assyrian identity, historical phases of the genocide of the Assyrians is uncovered. Systematic persecution of the Assyrians as well as Armenians and Greeks, during the Ottoman and Turkish authority, steadily led one of the most ancient people of Upper Mesopotamia to extinction. Thus, one of the main goals of this Thesis is to make the Assyrian genocide broader known. On the other hand, this Thesis reminds us of our responsibility towards the danger of oblivion, while at the same time it suggests strategic counter-attacks against it, by demonstrating the power of memory. Besides, the struggle for recognizing genocide is a means to fight against the genocide of memory itself (EN)
