The twenty-six stories collected in this book were told by survivors of violence, oppression and abuse who took part in “Healing of Memories” workshops run by various Christian organisations under the co-ordination of the KwaZulu-Natal Christian Council.
Telling a painful story in a safe and loving environment and with the support of people sharing similar experiences is the first step, small but important, on a journey towards healing and reconciliation.
By agreeing to have their stories recorded and published, the participants show that, in spite of all obstacles, group processes like those in which they took part or any other form of community support can help wounded people to move on.
