Assyrians in Armenia commemorate the multiple genocides their people experienced

On August 7, Assyrians all throughout the world commemorated their people’s genocides. While Armenians commemorate one main genocide, the massacres of 1915 in the Ottoman Empire, Assyrians, remember the multiple genocides of their history. There are roughly 6,000 Assyrians in Armenia, most of them living in the villages of Verin Dvin, Arzni, Dimitrov and Nor Artagers. For Assyrians, the Armenian government recognizes and memorializes the massacres Assyrians experienced, and they feel their identity protected on Armenian lands.
