How do societies deal with massive trauma like war crimes and histories of systematic abuse and discrimination? Why do some nations face the truth and try to reconcile the past, while others repress and cover-up their actions, even generations later? To address those issues, this fascinating panel brings perspectives from Martha Mendoza, who shared a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the Korean War massacre at No Gun Ri; Kunda Dixit, whose trilogy on Nepal's bloody civil war has helped his country come to terms with a shocking past; and Allan Clarke, an indigenous Australian whose work has focused on unsolved Aboriginal deaths.
