Denial, Justification, Truth Seeking

Materials: Flipchart paper, markers


Exercise description

The participants split into three smaller groups, each of which is to work on a wall newspaper addressing one of the following types of behaviour in dealing with the past: denial, justification, and truth seeking. During group work, the participants should try to answer the following questions:

  • Who are the drivers of this process?
  • Why do they resort to this approach?
  • What are the social consequences of this approach?

After they are finished working in small groups, they present the wall newspapers for all three types of behaviour and have a plenary discussion.
