Learning


In sum, the construction of postmemory of the Genocide starts in childhood, with transmission in family and continues with education. In a comparative perspective, Armenian youth in Armenia experience a rather harmonized transmission in every process of socialization. However, in case of Turkey, since there is a conflict between what the children hear from their families and what they learn at schools, the transmission becomes rather turbulent. As a matter of fact, for the Armenian youth in Turkey, the transmission of genocide memory and the crisis of Armenian identity emerge correspondingly.
