Since the end of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), there have been few institutionalised spaces for South Africans to practically engage with personal memories and the apartheid past. This report considers and evaluates two of the few such spaces: the Cape Town Trauma Centre for Survivors of Violence and Torture and the Western Cape Branch of the Khulumani Support Group that grew out of the work of the Trauma Centre. This report will focus on the work of the support group, and in particular, on the work and perspectives of the group's executive committee.
