“Their struggle speaks to the many immigrant communities who have experienced trauma. 100 years ago, Armenians were nearly annihilated by genocide. Today, often unrecognized, it remains defining – while the long shadow of the Genocide creates a burden for young Armenian Americans, discouraging them from taking up their culture."
“Genocide always casts a long shadow. The greatest challenge for any community that has gone through genocide is to be able to come out of that shadow” – Khatchig Mouradian
