The Baqubah Refugee Camp was located 33 miles northeast of Baghdad, in Baqubah. Assyrians were relocated here between 1918 and 1920 when they were forced to leave their homeland; in 1933 they were massacred by the Iraqi government. This book gives a detailed picture of the refugee camp by Brigadier General H. H. Austin, Commandant of the Refugee Camp. After giving a detailed background of the events that led to the formation of the camp, Austin details the camp’s organization and daily life. The book also discusses the work of the “Assyrian Contingent” that was formed in the camp.
British officer Brigadier General H. H. Austin commanded the Bakuba Refugee Camp. During his tenure with the British army, he commanded two surveys in Anglo-Egyptian Sudan and Lake Rudolf (between 1899 and 1901) as well as other explorations in Africa.
