Farewell: Family Constellations With Descendants of Victims and Perpetrators
In his years of experience with patients, Hellinger has witnessed the consequences of the guilt of persecutors and the fate of victims of Nationalsocialism for subsequent generations. This book documents the attempt to help these patients confront the victims and persecutors in their own families and thereby lessen and even heal their suffering. In doing so, all participants are allowed to speak: survivors, children, even the guilty and the dead. When these voices are recognized, they withdraw and allow the living to transcend that boundary which still separates them from death.
