Abstract

Libraries for peace and hope: Memories of future of Colombian’s war victims in the Magdalena Medio region

The poster shows some of the results achieved within the research Project: Magdalena Medio’s archives of memory, which won the national competition to be supported by the AGN (National General Archive) in 2015. Final results were gained in 2016. The main aim of the project was to described the stories of some of the victims and/or victims’ relatives in which they recall their past but with a narrative that envisions a better future for them, for their families and their communities. Therefore, the poster will represent the main ideas and concepts war victims used to described a encouraging future based on their lives´ experiences. Those ideas will be place in a symbolic tree of concepts. On one side of the tree, the concepts will be presented in English, on the other side in Spanish (The interview´s original language). Some of the ideas and concepts are linked to photos taken to the interviewees and the community (**Permission granted). The poster´s second part summarizes the challenges Colombian libraries will face in this new peace era, as a place of memory and reconciliation.
