What we do
We are active in the area of violence like war, genocide, slavery, incest, rape, discrimination and anti-Semitism. We have three programs:
We help victims and their offspring to overcome their adversity, get back on their feet (physically, emotionally) and to become as independent as possible.
We help violent individuals and their offspring to become aware of destructive impulses and to learn to express their frustration in a more constructive way. Research shows that perpetrators are often victims of violence themselves. We help to break this cycle.
We help children and adults to remember, understand and learn from war and violence. As UNESCO says: Since war and violence start in the mind, it is in the mind that the defences of peace must be constructed. We help to build those defences.
