Hacemos Memoria: Journalists and citizens deal with Colombia’s history | DW Akademie


We had the opportunity to work with
the community, especially with people who have suffered quite large, victims of violence. It has been very nice work. It has not only led to academic learning, from the journalism side, from the
part of sources, from the documentary part. But also learnings about
how to approach these people who have suffered so much. And about how to report on these issues that are very complicated to deal with. Having participated, having been in
this project “Hacemos Memória” was a very important learning, because
we can now connect people or institutions of the municipality and
share that memory that everyone has, and the individual perspectives on that memory. Being able to be with those people and
those professionals that you brought was important. Well, that’s a base, a fundamental one. “Hacemos Memória” to me
it served much to sensitize more with the topic, because even though I had to suffer all this conflict, it serves to realize, to reflect. There are people who always suffered more than me, people who lost everything and we have the possibility to contribute to that history is not forgotten. It is not about forgetting, but about healing and in continuing the construction of a better community.
