Rate this:
Truth and Indignation offers the first close and critical assessment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) as it is unfolding. Using interviews with survivors and oblate priests and nuns, as well as testimonies, texts, and visual materials produced by the Commission, Niezen raises some very important questions: What makes Canada's TRC different than others around the world? What kinds of narratives are emerging and what do they mean for reconciliation, justice, and conceptions of traumatic memory? And what happens to the ultimate goal of reconciliation when a large part of the testimony--that of nuns, priests, and government officials--is scarcely evident? Thoughtful, provocative, and uncompromising, Niezen offers an important contribution to our understanding of the TRC process in general, and the Canadian experience in particular.
