ABOUT THE FILM

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. What Will Become of Us follows six Armenian Americans – famous and otherwise – as they navigate the 100th Anniversary of the Genocide and strive to forge identities for the next 100 years. Can Armenian Americans create a new future – honoring their past, while unshackling themselves from its trauma?

ARMENIAN MARTYRS' MEMORIAL

A TRIBUTE TO THE 1,500,000 ARMENIANS MARTYRED BETWEEN 1915-1918


On April 24, 1977, the solemn dedication of the Armenian Martyrs' Memorial took place. Each year, on the first Sunday following April 24, the Committee, along with the three churches, conducts a service to perpetuate the memories of those who lost their lives in the Genocide of 1915.

The monument, designed by the nine members of the monument Committee, is of the early Byzantine era. The cross atop the cupola is typical of the Armenian cross and the oval cupola with six columns set on a square base is typical of the 17th century architecture. Set in this unusual formation of two pilasters that support the cupola is the intricately carved tableau consisting of six khatchkars (cross stones). In early times, khatchkars were small-sized memorial cruciform stones and predominantly of Armenian influence. A similar khatchkar tableau appears in the Martyrs' Monument in Etchmiadzin, Armenia.
