Calling For Academic Signatures To Recognize The Simele Massacre as Genocide & Its Sites as Protected Places of Remembrance

On August 7, Assyrian Genocide Remembrance Day, The Assyrian Studies Association jointly partnered with other 35 fellow Assyrian community organizations & allies to sign a letter calling on the Iraqi authorities to recognize the Simele Massacre of 1933.
