"This book is one of the very few books highlighting the long term psychological plight of forgotten human atrocities and genocide. The importance of the book comes not only as a reminder of the forgotten human tragedies and genocide it also sheds a light to new role of mental health professionals in understanding the psychological consequences of mass trauma and victimization. It also provides directions to proactive measures in preventing human sufferings.

The negative impact of denying human sufferings would strengthen victimization process and enhance the cycle of violence. The clear and easy psychological analysis and straightforward definitions of trauma, victimization and genocide make this book useful for scholars interested in peace and reconciliation such as researchers, policy makers, students and many others.

As a Palestinian, I was amazed to read the real and logic psychological analysis of trauma, denial, victimization and forgiveness. The unresolved psychological consequences of genocide, loss at individual and community levels, continuous and repetitive trauma might also strengthen
hopelessness, feeling of victimization that transmit from one generation to another and might to lead to suspicions of the otherís motivations.

The book gives noticeable lessons on how to pave the road towards peace and reconciliation: acknowledging human atrocities, apology for survivors and their families, and recognition of others are steps towards forgiveness and reconciliation." -- Abdel Hamid Afana, Ph.D.
President of the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT)
