This workshop will deal with the interrelations between two parts within us: the aggressor and the victim. As traces of the holocaust as well as of other traumas, civilisational collapses and human catastrophies these roles are embodied, silenced, culturalized and transgenerationally transmissed in education and families all over Europe and throughout the world. We will start from our own personal histories, have encounters, look for and discuss ways for prospective generations. Let's do flying exercises!

The workshop is part of the "Traces of holocaust"- project founded by Yaacov Naor (who passed away in 2018) and Hilde Goett (former president of PIfE). Still in his lifetime, they invited new leaders to continue this important work as a part of the DNA of PIfE, now PAfE: Elinor Zalmona (Israelian expressive art therapist), Dania Appel (Swiss art therapist) and Manfred Jannicke (German psychodramatist), all with their personal connection to the past and to the topic.
