Genocide is taking place against the indigenous Assyrians in post-invasion Iraq. Defying Deletion is an emotionally charged documentary that focuses on the struggle of the Assyrian race in Iraq.
The history of the Assyrians is rooted deep into the northern Nineveh Plains of Iraq, but their religion is Christian, and after the US led invasion in 2003, they have been the target of ethnic cleansing, cultural genocide and region-based killing.
This ongoing genocide has led to over 70 of their churches bombed, hundreds of them killed and hundreds of thousands of them forced to flee Iraq and take refuge in unwelcoming countries like Syria, Jordan and Turkey. They are experiencing one of the world's largest humanitarian crises.
