How can communities haunted by the circumstance of genocide, atrocities, and anti-Semitism rebuild the trust, respect, and institutions that can prevent a relapse after a conflict has come to an end? There are several examples of truth and reconciliation efforts in post-genocide societies, some of which have resulted in healing and others resulting in impunity.
Join NH Fulbright Association with the World Affairs Council, in partnership with the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Keene State College, in this FREE hybrid event, as our speakers, U.S. Fulbright Scholar Dr. John Sturtz, and Christa Kirby, VP, Talent Development & Leadership Practice Director at Corporate Education Group, discuss their reconciliation work in post-genocide Bosnia & Herzegovina. Audience members will explore lessons learned from these personal experiences and how these approaches can guide future reconciliation work. Healing does not come quickly or easily, meaning communities require ongoing support and unbiased efforts to repair community wounds.
