Summary

This short documentary features eight victims of terrorism from across the globe showcasing their personal objects/markings.

Description

The
Victims of Terrorism "Memories" film was launched on 11 May 2022 by
the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Center during the United Nations
High-Level International Conference on Human Rights, Civil Society and
Counter-Terrorism in Malaga, Spain. This short documentary features eight
victims of terrorism from across the globe showcasing their personal
objects/markings. These objects highlight the remembrance, recognition and
resilience traits personified by each one of them. It is a simple but powerful
way for audiences to relate to the victims; to feel their loss and to better
understand the importance of remembering and paying tribute to victims of
terrorism. Part of our shared human experience is an innate need to attach
personal meaning to physical objects: it is something we do from the moment of
our birth. Physical objects hold memories, emotions, aspirations: they form
links to people no longer with us, and they keep us connected to versions of
ourselves that were lost or forever changed—sometimes through growth or the
passage of time, sometimes by a traumatic event, such as a terrorist attack.
