How does trauma shape us? How does it leave its mark on the spaces and places where violence has been perpetrated? Two powerful writers consider trauma and healing from different perspectives. In Traumata Meera Atkinson explores the lifelong reverberation of trauma - across generations and across social structures. And educator, Rabbi Ariel Burger spent years working alongside Elie Wiesel who channelled his own trauma into his teachings.
