Murat Demir and Cihan Karabulut are grandchildren to young Assyrians who were forced to convert to Islam during the Assyrian Genocide Seyfo 1915. Murat’s grandfather Eliyo always told his children not to forget their Assyrian origin. Although these converts did their best to be assimilated among the local Kurds of their home village Şımşım in Lice, Diyarbakir, they were never accepted. They were reminded of their Christian origin everyday by being called “Bav Fellah” (sons of Christian). This term was used as humiliation, but thanks to that we kept awareness about our ethnic identity, Murat says. Archeologist Eliyo Eliyo “discovered” the existence of these Muslim Assyrians while documenting ancient Assyrian heritage in Turabdin and Diyarbakir. In 2013 he helped them to establish the Assyrian Cultural Association of Diyarbakir/Amid. The awareness of their Assyrian origin is steadily increasing among these people and their number like wise. Cihan Karabulut is also an archeologist and dreams of Assyrian unity that may lead to one day walk on the streets of Nineveh – the capital of Assyria.
