The ancient Assyrian civilization, also know as Sumerians, is the oldest known. They are the first civilization to be documented in c 5000 BCE. The Greek referred to Assyria as Mesopotamia "between the rivers". The Assyrians were the pioneers of many aspects of modern life today, yet many people don't know about their existents and importance in the history of mankind. Today the ancient Assyrian territory is part of several nations as Iraq, northeast Syria, northwest Iran, and southeastern Turkey. However, I was born and raised in Germany, but I have an Assyrian background. Most of the people that I meet have never heard about us Assyrians. Therefore I made this short documentary. My first project that I edited on Avid. Enjoy! Barbara Diril Motion Pictures & Television Student (source of the interview with Dr. Simo Porpola is youtube)
