Resources for Aftermath & Anniversaries
On Tuesday January 18th, Germans and non-Germans were brought together by the Dart Centre at the Frontline Club in London to discuss how Germans have dealt psychologically with their country’s complex history.
On the weekend observance of three years after the September 11th attack, victims traveled to the Mid-America Press Institute workshop, co-sponsored by the Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma, to give their impressions on how reporters should interview those effected by violence.
