Confronting the Truth (73 min) When bloodshed ends, political agreements are signed, and peace is restored, the past still remains. In the last 15 years, a number of countries emerging from political turmoil have chosen to move forward into the future by looking back. They believe the unspeakable truths of massive human rights abuse can't simply be forgotten: they need to be aired and acknowledged so that victims can regain their dignity and society can be rebuilt.
By telling the stories of truth and reconciliation commissions in Peru, South Africa, East Timor and Morocco, Confronting the Truth reveals how commissions work, what they can and cannot achieve, and what impact they have on the communities they serve.
