It elucidates the destruction of villages in the mid-1970s and the border clearings of 1977–8, including the setting up of collective towns in the midst of a large ethnic cleansing campaign. The research examines the villages affected and their historical and cultural significance to the Assyrian population. The chapter also takes a critical look at governmental acculturation policies and their effect on individuals.
