Materials: Flipchart paper, marker


Exercise description

The whole group works together to produce a wall newspaper about: “What taboos are present in our society about the violent past?”

This is followed by a discussion in the plenary about the following questions:

“Why are we silent about these things? Why are they difficult to talk about? Who or what makes them into taboos?”


Alternative version: This exercise can also be done in small mixed groups; this can also be preceded by individual work, where everyone is first asked to think for themselves and note down their answers on a post-it, and then to split into small groups.
