Meeting with Krasnodar’s resident, Maria Nazarova (Bit Diro), who tells of the Assyrian village in Mar Bisho, which is located on the border between Turkey and Iran
Maria’s mother was from this village, and her father is from Urmia. They fled to Russia in 1917 during the genocide of Assyrians, Armenians and Greeks. Maria Danilovna tells us that her mother descends from the family of Bet-Kalleita priests, and gave us a copy of the photo of the village in Mar Bisho.
