for Conservation and Promotion
of the Aramaic Cultural Heritage

Actual efforts - News

  1. The Foundation organizes three exhibitions on the Aramaic cultural heritage in Berlin during the second half of 2007. The exhibitions shall inform the public about the threat to the Aramaic cultural heritage, gathering attention and support for its safeguarding:

            1. "Tur Abdin - roots of the endangered culture and language of the Arameans" from 17.09. to 01.10.2007 in the Urania (An der Urania 17, 10787 Berlin). The exhibition starts with a lecture at 17.30 p.m.
    There will be presented photos from the present day Tur Abdin - people, landscape, churches, monasteries - combined with facsimile of ancient Aramaic scripts from Tur Abdin, provided by the Department of Christian Orient in the State Library Berlin, as well as actual Aramaic prints.
      2. The same exhibition is shown from 4.11. to 18.11.2007 in the exhibition hall of the Town Hall Schöneberg, John-F.-Kennedy-Platz, 10825 Berlin.
      3. "Arameans in Berlin" from 22.11. to 13.01.2008 in Werkstatt der Kulturen, Wissmannstr. 32, 12049 Berlin. The above mentioned exhibition will be supplemented by the presentation of Aramaic traditions, a lecture on the Aramaic cultural heritage and discussions on its actual situation.
  2. Learning the Aramaic language with the greatest of ease is in the centre of the project of a bilingual (german-aramaic) day nursery in Berlin. The foundation is in contact with the responsible authorities. It is aiming at a project which could be used as an example by other Aramaic communities in Germany.
  3. The Foundation  proposes the setting-up of a working-group, dealing with the elaboration of curricula and teaching aid for  Aramaic lessons (Toroyo and Kthobonoyo). The Foundation offers this proposal to persons, scientists and departments of universities, working for the conservation and promotion of the Aramaic language.

Please, let us know your opinion, get in contact with the Foundation.
