The notion of post-memory suggests that traumatic historical events, whether distanced by time or obscured for dubious political reasons, cannot be easily forgotten. We are the post-war age group —a generation of Lebanese who have grown up overshadowed not directly by the traumatic events, but by numerous actions that took place before our birth. We are in a complex and ambivalent position searching for meaning, historical truth, and identity, caught between the contradictory forces of collective remembrance and social forgetting.
