Save The Christians: The Forgotten Refugees

Experience the lives of Iraqi Christians who, under threat of death from ISIS, were forced to flee their ancestral homeland.

The Middle East is the cradle of Christianity, and for two millennia – long before the rise of Islam – Christian communities across the region lived and thrived. Until now.

With the mantra: “we will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” ISIS has been successful in its genocide, eradicating almost all traces of Christian heritage in the region; hundreds of holy sites, churches, and entire communities have been purged from existence.

Once home to an estimated 1.5 million Christians, Iraq’s Christian population has dwindled to a staggering 200,000. The Rebel traveled to the Biblical land of Nineveh, now modern-day Batnaya, to assess the damage and give a voice to the brave men, women, and children, who remained behind.
