Benatha is a small village proudly overlooking the Sapna Valley, and facing the castle of Saddam Hussein. Inhabited only by Christians, Benatha is the first village to settle in the valley. A figurehead of Christianity in the region, this village of thirty families will see its population flee since the Kurdish revolution.
When they return ten years later, their village is occupied by Kurdish forces. Their 300-year-old Assyrian Chapel, which is so precious to their eyes, is sacked and destroyed.
