Healing through memories - preview

Marina Cantacuzino introduces The Forgiveness Project, which hopes to find sanctuary at Old Jordans

I first heard about the Healing of Memories workshops in the summer of 2003 when I was in South Africa collecting stories for an exhibition called, 'The F Word: images of forgiveness'
  • The exhibition launched in London six months later and among the stories told was that of Father Michael Lapsley who runs the Institute for Healing of Memories in Cape Town
  • In 1990 Fr Michael had both hands blown off when FW de Klerk's death squads sent a letter bomb sandwiched between two pages of a religious magazine to his home in Zimbabwe

  • Marina Cantacuzino
