Ein sehr eindrücjlicher Film, bravo.

November 4, 2022
Wer noch kein Bild oder keine Ahnung davon hat, wie sich die Not, die Angst und gleichzeitig die Hoffnung vieler Kriegsgeschädigten täglich Hand in Hand gehen, wird mit der Dokumentation der Geschichten einzelner Familienschicksale sehr konkret informiert. Auch sehr bewegend sind die verschiedenen Erzählungen der Überlebenden aus dem Sayfo-Genozid 1914-18. Das ist ein sehr interessanter und lehrreicher Film für jede Geschichtsstunde eines Schulprogramms.

Sehr guter Film

Ich bin eine Enkeltochter der Zeugen. Dieser Film hat nur einen Bruchteil der Wahrheit gezeigt. Unsere Grosseltern haben uns noch viel mehr erzählt. Diese Erzählungen waren unsere gute Nachtgeschichten vor den Einschlafen. Ich danke Aida Schläpfer für diesen Film

Sayfo 1915

Zeigt Parallelen zwischen den Völkermord vom 1915 und das Leid der Suryoye im Jahr 2014 bis Jetzt. Traurige Warheiten die aufgezeigt werden.

Documentary about an uncomfortable reality

October 30, 2022
The western world thinks very human about the Islamic world. Watch this film and see the real face of the Islamic world. IS could only have this success because of the support of the Christians Islamic neighbours. After the defeat of IS the mindset is still present, as before IS.

Herzzerreißende Erzählungen und Parallele zu Sayfo 1915 bis heute gleiche Tragödien leider ständige Kontinuität, sehr gut dargestellt.

Sehr gut gemachter Film

Der Film gibt die historischen Hintergründe, welche zum heutigen Leid der Christen im Orient führen wieder. Die Zusammenhänge sind sehr zutreffend und beschreiben den tiefsitzenden Schmerz in der Seele der Christen. Der Film ist absolut empfehlenswert!

Most see movie

The movie was powerful, telling about the massacer of 100 years ego and showing after 100 years the same community (Assyrians) is facing the same massacre in middle east. As a member of this small minority I'm thankful to Mrs. Aida Schlapfer doing this great movie. I had the honor to meet Aida !!!! Thank you Aida it was great to seeing you and hope to see your works at more successful places.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND TIMELY DOCUMENTARY

October 2, 2022
EVERYONE SHOULD FEEL COMPELLED TO SEE THIS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT DOCUMENTARY. IN ADDITION TO FEELING THANKFUL THAT I GOT TO SEE THIS FILM, I FEEL EVEN MORE GRATEFUL THAT I GOT TO SEE MS. AL HASSANI AT THE Q &A, AND THAT THERE WAS A LARGE CROWD AT THAT SCREENING. THE MASSACRE OF THE ARMENIANS BY THE OTTOMANS CERTAINLY COMPARES TO THE HOLOCAUST, THE INQUISITION, SLAVERY, AND THE SLAUGHTER OF THE NATIVE AMERICANS (AS WELL AS THE MASSACRES COMMITTED BY MAO, POL POT, STALIN, SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC, SADDAM HUSSEIN, AND OLIVER CROMWELL'S SLAUGHTER OF IRISH CATHOLICS). IT'S ESPECIALLY TIMELY NOW BECAUSE THE NEWLY PM OF ITALY HAS YET TO RESPOND TO REQUESTS TO CONDEMN MUSSOLINI- AS WELL AS CONDEMNING THE PEOPLE WHO STILL LIONIZE HIM. PERHAPS SHE SHOULD SEE THIS DOCUMENTARY, TOO.

Powerfully Telling

September 30, 2022
I was the only person watching this tonight and that in itself speaks volumes about why this film had to be made. It's a story that should be more widely known and I found this a powerful if at times perplexing contribution to that.

A massacre that has been kept silent for over a hundred years.
