New Project in the Caucasus


The new Berghof project “Stories matter. Intergenerational Abkhaz dialogue”, funded by COBERM (a joint UNDP – EU initiative), was launched during a 6-days trip by Oliver Wolleh and Andrea Zemskov-Züge throughout Abkhazia. With our partners “World without Violence” and the “Mothers of Abkhazia for Peace & Social Justice” the Berghof Foundation is now working in all Abkhaz regions.

The project marks a new phase in our work on history, memory and identity in Abkhazia. During intense interview – listening sessions we witnessed how the traumatic past has its impact on history as well as everyday life in Abkhazia, today. We are glad to have assembled a team and developed an approach of addressing and discussing this traumatic past.
