Heritage Archive Initiative
Under our Preserving Assyria program, we operate our Heritage Archive Initiative through which we professionally preserve, revitalize, and restore rare Assyrian books, photographs, and other historical documents. Our team also partners with leading academic institutions to display archival materials for exhibitions.

We're collecting and professional archiving historical Assyrian materials such as books, photographs, poems for scholars and future generations toenjoy and use. This initiative predominantly works with members of the Assyrian community and to acquire materials in order to preserve the Assyrian culture and heritage. Currently, we are working hard to professional digitize newly acquired materials that will be available in a database by summer 2022! Make sure to check back soon.
Have materials you want to donate to add to our archival database?
Exhibitions Displaying Heritage Archive Materials
We're working with universities across the U.S. to plan, organize, and contribute archival materials that positively display the history of Assyrians. Most recently, we were one of the sponsors of the newly opened exhibition, Tell Our Stories: Artifacts from the Assyrian Genocide held at California State University, Stanislaus. Exhibition is to run until August 7, 2022.
