Naum Faiq und die Assyrische Aufklärung – Naum Faiq and the Assyrian Awakening


Naum Faiq und die Assyrische Aufklärung – Naum Faiq and the Assyrian Awakening

Malfono Abboud Zeitoune informiert über seine letzte Bucherscheinung, und die neue Englische Version.

Shlama/Shlomo myaqre,

Dear friends,

First of all I wish you a Happy New Year 2023!

I am very pleased to announce that the English edition of my book on Naum Faiq and his writings is released and ready for distribution.

Naum Faiq Palakh is unquestionably considered a mastermind of the Assyrian national movement.  In his long career as a journalist, writer and activist, he has left a great legacy.

His works seemed to be completely lost since his death in 1930. But through painstaking work, a large part of his writings could be located again.

With this book, numerous articles from originally Ottoman Turkish, Arabic and Syriac are translated into English for the first time. All texts are originally written in the Syriac alphabet in the periodicals Kawkab Madenho, Bethnahrin and Huyodo in the period from 1910 to 1930.

The writings of Naum Faiq provide an insight into a critical period that threatened the very existence of the Assyrians. The massacres of 1895 and later the genocide of the Assyrians in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 fall into the period of his work. These events are reflected in the articles of the aforementioned publications. 

The translation of these texts is important due to the worldwide dispersion of Assyrians as a result of genocide and persecution, so that these first-hand articles can be passed on to future generations. 

This book contain over 120 translated articles from Ottoman-Turkish, Arabic and Syriac beside an extensive and new biography of Naum Faiq.

There are two ways to order your copy of my latest book:

Please forward this message to friends and relatives who are interested in Assyrian history.

I wish you a happy new year 2023.

Thank you very much
