Assyrian Autumn on the Khabur PDF Print E-mail

Assyrian village Tel Hormiz on the Khabur
The Khabur River flows through a desert plain in Syria. Both banks of the river are dotted with Assyrian villages. The Assyrian Christians, who live a quiet life there, once had another homeland - the Hakkari mountains in eastern Turkey. How did they end up in the Khabur region and how does this Assyrian enclave look like these days? Impression of a journey along the river Khabur in the autumn of 2009. A story about trouble in paradise.
