In “Our Last Stand,” Helma Adde, an Assyrian-American school teacher from New York, spends her summer vacation traveling to Iraq and Syria to help raise awareness about the plight of the Christian communities (Assyrian/Chaldean/Syriac) threatened by civil war and ISIS.

Helma’s journey takes her from refugee camps struggling to care for Christians who have fled ISIS in Northern Iraq, to the small militias helping to defend and retake villages from ISIS in the Nineveh Plains and Hasakah, Syria, to Helma’s family’s hometown of Qamishli in Northern Syria. During her trip, Helma uncovers both heart-breaking and inspiring stories of grief, despair, persecution, courage and hope as she discovers what it means to sacrifice for her faith and community.

This first-of-its-kind documentary will inform Westerners, especially Americans, about the existence of these ancient Christian communities, the threats they face, and the crucial role these communities play in the Middle East. By building awareness, “Our Last Stand” will help American citizens, policy makers and others stand in solidarity with the persecuted.

MAHG Workshop
Title: “The Matter of Black Lives: Black Experiences in the United States and the Question of Genocide
MAHG Workshop Event

Date: March 4-5, 2017 (Saturday-Monday) Click here for the schedule
Location: Alton Auditorium, Stockton University & Carnegie Center, Atlantic City
Cost: Free

The goal of this workshop is to interrogate the relationship between the experiences of Black Americans in the United States and the crime of genocide. There is a growing scholarship investigating the borderland between slavery, the slave trade, segregation, Jim Crow, the prison-industrial complex, and the historical process of genocide. This borderland raises important conceptual questions for the fields of Black History and Genocide Studies, particularly in light of an ongoing debate among scholars on the definition and meaning of the concept of genocide. The workshop will offer an opportunity for scholars of Black history and cultures in the US, scholars of genocide and mass violence, and human rights activists to come into conversation around a set of pressing contemporary questions: What does it mean to be Black in America? How should we characterize the atrocities committed against Black Americans in the past and in the present? Why has the term genocide been largely eschewed in scholarly discussions of Black American experiences? What are the consequences of marginalizing a ‘genocidal framework’ on historical memory and on deeply entrenched social institutions of inequality?

His research explores the interactions of state and society in the multiethnic and multi-religious borderlands that came under Hungarian occupation during World War II, situating the Holocaust in those regions within their modern histories. Dr. Segal also draws comparisons with wartime border areas in  Bulgaria, to address the broad geo-politics of southeast Europe in the 20th Century and the dynamics of social disintegration in the face of the mass violence unleashed by political visions of state and nation building such as “Greater Hungary” and “Greater Bulgaria.” Dr. Segal has taught courses at the University of Haifa and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has held, inter alia, a Harry Frank Guggenheim Fellowship; a Fulbright Fellowship; and postdoctoral fellowships at Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Segal has also initiated and took a central role in the organization of a number of international conferences and workshops on genocide and mass violence, and established the Israel Academic Exchange program between the Strassler Center and universities in Israel.
