  • A monument commemorates the victims of the Assyrian genocide committed by the Ottoman (Turkish) government during World War One and the Simele Massacre at the hands of the Iraqi army in 1933.

    The Assyrian genocide has been recognised by two State parliaments, first by the South Australia Parliament, and the upper and lower houses of the New South Wales Parliament.

    On the monument, the hand represents the people who dedicated their lives to create a better and safer world. The hand is draped in the Assyrian flag, representing the survival and spiritual rebirth and unity of the Assyrian people. Figures of young children come together at the base, symbolising the faith in the younger generation to carry the torch for the future of the Assyrian nation. The hand holds the globe for recognition of the Assyrian genocide. The Lamassu (winged bull) is a mythological entity which wards off evil spirits.
