Alé Duarte, on collective trauma

Prague Municipal Library – large hall, Mariánské nám. 1, Praha 1

How does growing up in a militarized and tense society such as today’s Israel affect a person? How is the harsh and stressful political reality reflected in the psyche of the individuals who live in it? Is the trauma caused by a social or geopolitical situation any different from trauma that has its origin in other reasons?
