The sky is falling: History, war, violence and retrieving humanity — Victoria Grieve-Williams


Warraimaay historian Victoria Grieve-Williams reflects on the necessity of attending to the history of war and violence, in order to understand what it is about human nature that creates such horror. We need to move beyond romanticism and silences to grapple with the true nature of war and also with the fact that conflicts and war are increasing. Those who have been into the abyss of war and survived are to be treasured for their understanding of ways to heal and ways to avoid repeating the same mistakes.
