Healing Through Remembering (HTR) is an independent initiative made up of a diverse membership with different political perspectives working on a common goal of how to deal with the legacy of the past as it relates to the conflict in and about Northern Ireland.
The membership includes people from loyalist, republican, British Army and police backgrounds as well as individuals from different religious backgrounds, victims’ groups, academics and community activists. They have come together over the last twelve years to focus on the issue of how to deal with our conflictual past.
HTR seeks to ensure that its work is framed by sound principles for dealing with the past including respect, diversity of opinion, willingness to engage and inclusivity.
There are five areas in which HTR works:
- Day of Reflection (21 June)
- Truth Recovery and Acknowledgment
- Network of Commemoration
- Living Memorial Museum
