Abstract: The Institute for Healing of Memories (IHOM) was established in 1998 and developed out of the chaplaincy work of the Trauma Centre for Victims of Violence and Torture that was conducted in partnership with the Counselling Working Group of the Religious Response to the TRC. The IHOM was conceptualised as a platform for victims of human rights abuses who could not testify before the TRC. To this end victims, the majority of whom were active in the anti-apartheid struggle, participate in three-day workshops geared towards personal healing and societal reconstruction. The healing of memories workshops are modeled as parallel processes to the TRC. As a result, many records of this organisation relate to workshops in which people could tell their stories. Because of their confidential and sensitive contents, these records are not in the public domain.
