Tatik, tell me about your tattoos.

But grandma, you never

told me who gave them to you?

Okay, okay, sorry grandma.

Grandma, you said your

family was rich in Turkey?


What about after you left?

What happened then?

Do you remember?

What about after?

What happened after you left?

Did you have enough food or water?

Did the guards tell you

where they were taking you?


What-what do you mean?

You don't remember what happened

after your mother disappeared?

Oh, I, I didn't know

we had Turkish relatives.

Grandma, did your uncle

gave you those tattoos?

It doesn't make any sense.

Mom freaked out when I

wanted to get a tiny tat,

tiny ankle tattoo, and now you're saying

Armenian children 100 years ago

all had tattoos on their hands?

Grandma, it is for school!



I've been doing a lot of research and...

Those tattoos are the

markings that were given

to the women and children

during the Armenian genocide.

Some of them signified belonging

to a master as a slave.

In many cases, as a sex slave.

My grandma's 108 years old.


It's very common in our family.

Her sister died a year ago.

She was almost 100 years old.

They are some of the last

few remaining survivors

of the Armenian genocide that took place

during the first World War.

Not many left, as it happened

exactly 100 years ago today.

[Eva] Maro-jan!


I'm busy, mom!

[Eva] So am I!

It's getting cold!

Today is April 24th, 2015.

The 100th anniversary of

the Armenian genocide.

1.5 million Armenian

women, children and men

were slaughtered by

the Turkish Government.


[Eva] Maro, now!





Are you home?

I've been knocking.


I sent you like 100 text messages.


Babe, I thought we weren't

even gonna do this.

Hide from each other.

Whatever it is, you can tell me.

You know?

You can tell me anything.

(Clara gasping)

(Clara screaming)


Something terrible happened today.

One of my cousins was found

dead by his girlfriend

in his home.

I don't know the details,

but I overheard it was either

a heart attack, or a seizure of some sort.

My parents never tell me anything.

They-they still I'm a child.


I guess that's their way of protecting me.

My grandma's still in shock.


But I suspect there's something

they're not telling me

because when we heard from Sevan's father,

my grandma said, and-and I

repeat word for word, she said,

"It is finally here."

My parents think she's just in shock,

but what does it mean?

"It is finally here"?

[Eva] Maro-jan!

It's not the time for computers!

Go help your grandma!



Keep what promise?


[Maro] What are saying?

What-what curse?
