The documentary called 'Sayfo: The forgotten genocide' is a joint project by the Evangelical Broadcasting (EO) channel in the Netherlands and the WCA that will soon be broadcast on Channel 2; click here for a Dutch summary. However, before the movie will appear on TV, on 20 April 2015 at 19:00 hours there will be an exclusieve premiere in the Wolff CineStar cinema in Enschede, the Netherlands.

For this project, the WCA received support from its national member Federations, the Aramean satellite channel Suryoyo Sat, the Syriac Aramean Youth Federation (SAUF) and the Syriac/Aramaic Academic Federation (SAAF) from Sweden, and generous Arameans worldwide.
