The contributors to this volume aim to illuminate how truth and evidence form part of a much wider debate on the representation of history. The distinction between memory and testimony is a crucial theme. Memory, though selective, is the basis of testimony. Testimony provides an audience with information that becomes evidence of what was seen or experienced. Such evidence can form the basis of legal truth.
