Al Qosh, Iraq

An elderly inhabitant of Al-Qosh sits in the courtyard of the Saint George church. The Assyrian town, dating back more than 2500 years, is perched on a hillside overlooking the Nineveh Plain 50 kms north of the city of Mosul. It is one of the earliest Christian communities in the country. While many Christians from Mosul and other parts of Iraq have come to the area for safetly, thousands of Christians have been forced to flee Iraq in recent decades. It is estimated that more than 40,000 "Alqushnaye" and their descendents now live in the cities of Detroit, Michigan and San Diego, California alone.
