The persistence of traumatic memory is a recognizable part of post-conflict culture, often re-emerging long after the events that caused it have ceased. Narration or depiction might provide a means of dealing with the cataclysmic past, without suggesting that this process can ever be complete, or even sufficient. How are traumatic events passed down through generations? What is the role of photography within the production and reproduction of past traumas?
