Online discussion organised by Nodo Alemania: Memory, future and non-repetition?
As part of its series of online meetings, the German Group supporting the Truth Commission has invited Tamara Moncada Landeta and Edna Guerrero Caicedo to a discussion on the experience of having a missing relative in Colombia and the legal, institutional, and coping processes that this represents.
The online meeting will be held on Tuesday July 28, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. (Germany) – 11:00 a.m. (Colombia/Ecuador), and can be accessed through the Nodo Alemania Facebook Live page
The search for a loved one who has been forcibly disappeared creates uncertainty, pain, and anguish to families and society. The ongoing waiting for the missing person’s return results in a growing concern to know the truth about the events: Where is s/he? The search for the missing person is a search for the truth in which collective spaces are built: networks form between people that open the way for joint processes of recognition, justice and reparation.
CAPAZ supports the German Group of the Truth Commission with pedagogical, academic, and informative activities regarding the Commission’s mandate.
