Rate this:

For communities who have been the target of political violence, the damaging after-effects can haunt what remains of their families, their communities, and the societies in which they live. Terrain of Memory tells the story of the Japanese Canadian elders who built a memorial in New Denver, British Columbia, to transform a site of political violence into a space for remembrance. The book shows how collectively excavating painful memories can contribute to building relations across social and intergenerational divides. Those seeking a deeper understanding of the potential of memorial projects in transforming the damaging effects of human rights abuses should read this compelling account of community building and social justice.
