Documenta – Centre for Dealing with the Past

Documenta  was founded to initiate the process of dealing with the past, establish a factual truth about the war in Croatia and contribute to shifting discussions from the level of disputes over facts toward a dialogue on interpretation. In the realization of its goals, Documenta cooperates with organizations of families of missing persons, other civil initiatives, governmental institutions, international institutions and organizations, institutions of state and local self-governments, scientific-scholarly institutions, religious communities, media and other interested parties. In addressing past abuses, Documenta focuses on justice for victims and considers both, retributive and restorative justice, as valuable assets for addressing needs of victims and of society at large.
