Assyrians are the last Aramaic-speaking group indigenous to a homeland between Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Iran. Their communities were transformed by missionary education beginning in the 19th century; but documenting this history through Assyrian voices has proven elusive in the wake of their genocide and displacement during World War I.
