Monument to Assyrian genocide victims to be unveiled in Belgium

After Australia, U.S., Armenia and France, this time it is in Liège in Belgium that a new memorial dedicated to the Assyrian (Syriac) Genocide Seyfo is installed. This monument is at the initiative of the Syriac Institute of Belgium and Seyfo Center.

Seyfo literally means "sword" in the Syriac language and refers to the genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire in 1915 against all Christians in the territory belonging to present-day Turkey. Two thirds to three quarters of the three people involved – Armenians, Assyrians (Syriacs) and Pontic Greeks - were decimated.

Moushé Malke, an Assyrian world-renowned artist, carved a killed dove on a stone of 12 tons. It will include an inscription in French and Syriac in memory of the victims of Seyfo.

The official inauguration of the monument will be held on August 4, 2013.
