Fragments of War: How to Talk to Survivors Discussion after the screening of “What If the War Ends Tomorrow"

War leaves behind death and ruin while survivors must continue living. Some, to return to normalcy, need to share the stories of their experiences. How can we listen to those affected by war in a way that makes them feel heard, while also avoiding the risk of retraumatization? Can their stories have a real impact on rebuilding justice?
