Week 5: Climbing Mountains - Bailey Robbins

Week 5 at Khulumani opened my eyes to a reality I hadn’t quite considered yet. Up until this point, all my research, writing, interviews and other work have revolved around enforced disappearances of the past. Most of the cases I work with took place before I was even born. In South Africa people often speak of a healing country, a country that is moving forward from the past. When I deal with enforced disappearances that took place here, I think of the crime in the context of Apartheid. I think of it as something that doesn't happen anymore.
