In the Wake of Remembered Evil
South Africa is credited with having achieved one of the great historical non-violent transitions from oppression to democracy. In the 10 years after 1994, its citizens and government have enacted several measures for ensuring that future generations will neither forget the apartheid past nor ever repeat it: new laws, a new constitution, a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, museums, liberation anniversaries, and public memorials to human suffering in the past. This chapter pays special attention to the TRC of 1995-98 and lessons to be learned from its work by other countries.
