The Guestbook Project’s mission is to promote the power of storytelling as a means of healing exchange between divided peoples. It operates on the age-old maxim: if someone asks you who you are, you tell your story. Overcoming violence means expressing your own story and listening to the story of your enemy. Only in this way can one realize that one’s own story is another’s story, too. Guestbook operates on the belief that a creative exchange of stories can lead to a radical change of history.
