Mattia Unal is a young Aramaean with Swiss nationality and the son of a Syriac Orthodox priest in the Aramaean community in Italian-speaking Switzerland. From an early age, his identity has been shaped by the use of the Aramaic language and religion. Mattia’s awareness of his origins is, however, limited to what he has learned from his parents, who fled from their country to Switzerland in the early 1980s. Mattia and his father decide therefore to go on a journey, visiting the land of their family: Tur Abdin, “Mountain of the Servants of God”. The Legacy of Silence offers a personal view of the lives of Aramaean people, in the Diaspora and in their homeland, in the present and the past, in both the younger and the older generations, creating a picture of how an ethnic and religious minority in Turkey has lived and continues to live on today.

Question Suryoyutho:
Is what you refer to as the Aramaean community the same as the Assyrians?

Ethnic Assyrians are split between mainly five churches: Assyrian Church of the East, Syriac Orthodox Church, Maronite Catholic Church, Chaldean Catholic Church, and a small minority of them in the Antiochian Orthodox Church. The Assyrians go by many different names such as Suryoye, Syriac, Aramaean, Assyrians, etc.

In this case Aramean community (that was the description of the video and not my own words) would pretty much be equal to Syriac Orthodox. Some Syriac Orthodox wouldn't agree that it's the same as the Assyrians. Some would say that the Assyrians are those from the Church of the East and we Syriacs are Arameans while some would say that the people of the Church of the East are also Aramean and not Assyrians. And then there are Syriac Orthodox who use Assyrian as their ethnicity as well.

No problem.

Another documentary is coming out as well...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdpPzdI36wY

SHLOMO. The lost land
a film by Stefano Rogliatti and Matteo Spicuglia
50 minutes

Tur Abdin does not exist on maps. Turkey deep, predominantly Kurdish southeast, high Mesopotamia on the border with Syria. Tur Abdin is the birthplace of Arameans, an ancient christian people, the only one who still speak Aramaic. "Shlomo" is his greeting of peace. Language, culture and religion: the roots of identity at risk of extinction. Until a century ago, in Tur Abdin the Arameans were over 500 thousand, today there are barely 2500. Victims of the tragedies of the last century, fleeing from a country marked by conflict and discrimination. http://www.shlomolaterraperduta.com/
