Abstract [en]

Two docunents exist that describe massacres of Syriac Christians in 1895 inside the Ottoman Empire. These massacres are usually described as targetting only Armenians, so they give new information about the extent of the killing, plundering and impoverishment of the Christian population of Diyarbekir province. One is a description wrtitten by Habib Jarwe a Syriac Catholic priest living in Mardin, the other is a notebook compiled by American missionary Alpheus Andrus who was responsible for administering charity funds to the survivors of the massacres. Together both show how the Syriac community was greatly affected by the massacres.

Abstract [en]

This paper deals with the dilemmas scholars can run into when they encounter the conflict between political activists and what can be proven by evidence. The disputewith historians revolves around what the anthropologist Michel-Rolph Trouillot terms “Silencing the past”. This is certainly true in the case of the Roma and genocide.What complicates the case is that a long-standing memory is part of a still ongoing political activist campaign to build a recognized memory for all of Europe’s Roma.
