Voices of Survivors Project

After experiencing violence, destruction, and the loss of loved one, the survivors of mass violence and human rights abuses seek ways to come to terms with the past and to rebuild their lives, often while suffering from the aftereffects of intense truamas. This journey follows many paths even if survivors are often depicted as helpless victims who are incapacitated by post-traumatic stress disorder. The Voices of Survivors Project seeks to learn from the survivors themselves about their experiences of the past and their path forward. In doing so, it seeks to combat stereotypes and promote global dialogue and understanding.
