Day 5: Resisting Cultural Genocide
Often overlooked in the discourse concerning the atrocities committed against Assyrians is the destruction of their cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible. The concept of cultural genocide has never been legally defined or codified. While it lacks a clear or accepted definition, it is generally accepted that cultural genocide involves acts and measures undertaken to “destroy nations’ or ethnic groups’ culture through spiritual, national, and cultural destruction.” In the face of ongoing loss and destruction, we're using today to uplift Assyrian creatives whose work combats cultural genocide.
