The years 1960 through 1994 were a time of terror in South Africa. With the destruction of the yoke of apartheid in 1994, South Africa has had to come to terms with its oppressive past: recrimination and punishment, or forgiveness? This compelling program describes the efforts of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) to investigate human rights violations, to heal the country, and to help South Africa in its process of reinvention.

Two-Sided Account

Comments about PBS Facing the Truth with Bill Moyers:

A fairly even-handed account of the TRC. Instead of simply emphasizing how amazing it was that those who had suffered could forgive, it also told the stories of those who could not forgive and who wanted the wrong doers brought to justice. I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars only because at times it is difficult to understand the speakers.

Part of the Truth about South Africa

Comments about PBS Facing the Truth with Bill Moyers:

I first bought the VHS version of "Facing the Truth" for the University of Montana library years ago for a class I teach on Forgiveness and Reconciliation. I wore it out, so had to buy the DVD. Moyers and crew tell an even-handed version of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission story. As always, we see him treat every interviewee with dignity and respect. He also has the courage to share the Steven Biko story which does not end happily--part of the sad legacy of apartheid.
