The Last Christians of Iraq
Children at the Saint Yohana Church in the Christian town of Karaqosh are taught Catechism classes in a room lined with memorial plaques honoring Christians from the community who were killed during the Iran-Iraq war and subsequent conflicts. Located on the Nineveh Plain, the cradle of Christianity in Iraq, Karaqosh is the country's largest Christian city. It lies just 20 kilometers from Mosul, one of the most violent cities in Iraq and the scene of numerous attacks against the Christian population. Karaqosh, Iraq. 18/04/2014.
