It also holds perpetrators accountable to the truth for their actions. However, at the same time, the perpetrator is offered the opportunity to say his/​her part of the story and to explain his/​her actions. An attempt is made to create an understanding of the conflict and

(commercial) Empire airship service comprising six airships surrendered by the Germans for reparations. These airships would fly twice weekly to India, with a weekly extension to Australia. Burney hired Barnes N. Wallis, the scientist and inventor then employed by the Vickers Company, to inspect the airframes. His unfavourable report meant that if Britain was to have airships they would have to be designed and built in Britain

historic event would pass unnoticed in an age in which the miraculous had become commonplace. When a great corporation threw its lattice of airways over the world’s oldest continent, he thought it important to mark the occasion. The need was all the more in the gloomy days of war debts, sterile reparations and tumbling revenues. South Africa’s High Commissioner wondered, rather vaguely, what other

(post)colonial demands for moral redress, political concessions and legal reparations. While legitimate issues may exist with regard to the initial collection of material treasures and whether ethical limits were reached or exceeded, another, at least as important, conversation is whether the journey of these ancestral figures is indeed over.53 Backward-oriented provenance research alone – currently the main strategy of Euro-American institutions to pacify Indigenous claims – is not enough; even if it can be proved historically that so-called museum objects were not

where we see the positive purchase of extending Arendt's notion of banality as a condition that has been actively produced over time, and not something that is merely mundane or ordinary. The Court's Decree 005 of 2009 is a watershed in the breaking of this banality. One important result of the Court's intervention is the adoption of Law 1448 of 2011, also known as the Victims’ Law ( Ley de Víctimas y Restitución de Tierras ). It was passed with the aim of expanding government assistance and reparations to all eligible victims of the armed conflict

, recognised and legitimated.40 This is reflected in the increased salience of concepts such as reconciliation, repentance, reparations and victimhood, especially within a judicial context. Seeing the history of memories of the Algerian War offered here as part of this bigger picture  – as part of a world that possesses a heightened memorial consciousness and an increasingly transnational vocabulary through which this is articulated  – enables us to appreciate better the global resonances of the experiences of the pieds-noirs and harkis, without losing sight of the specific

‘pact with the Devil’ as the French plantation owners liked to portray the origins of the Revolution in voudou and the mysterious ‘blood ceremony’ held in the Bois Caiman, but a ‘pact with the devil’ in the form of French banks. Under threat of political and economic isolation, backed up by the sanction of massive military intervention, Haiti was forced to pay reparations of 150 million francs (equivalent to €100 billion today) to absentee former plantation and slave owners in France. This burden of debt purportedly owed by Haitians to senior bondholders in France
