Coordinator of the Sigrid Rausing Dialogues: Theresa Edelman.
The Sigrid Rausing Dialogues are a signature event of our triennial series of conferences. The sessions are an opportunity for delegates to be witnesses and to listen to stories of people who have experienced losses and/or any kind of trauma during conflict periods or post-conflict periods in their countries. This year’s SR Dialogues will focus on encounters between victims and perpetrators, and children or descendants of victims recounting their encounter with their parents’ killers or their descendants. Sessions include:
  1. Candice Mama: On her conversations in prison with apartheid-era police Eugene de Kock, who is responsible for the murder of her father.
  2. Denis Karagodin: On his search for the man who executed his great grand-father when he was imprisoned in Stalin’s Gulag, and his subsequent encounter with the grand-daughter of his father’s executioner who asked for his forgiveness.
  3. Ginn Fourie: On her reconciliation dialogue work with Letlapa Mpahlele who gave orders for the bombing operation in which her daughter was killed.
  4. Siya Mgoduka: On his refusal to meet with Eugene de Kock who designed the bomb planted in the car in which his father was killed.
