"By utilizing a variety of tools and techniques, including The Hangar, a comprehensive collection of resources such as cultural activities, archival material, technical workshops, and cutting-edge research, UMAM D&R aims to initiate collective reflection on the many different types of violence that plagued Lebanon’s past, weighs heavily on its present, and has the potential to influence its future as well. In short, they represent the keys to historical and political self-analysis, understanding the formation of national and individual identity among Lebanese, acknowledgment and recognition of responsibility and blame, and potentially reconciliation. We believe that advocating Lebanon’s recollection of its violent past represents a critical, inescapable task in its national redemption and advancement in the new millennium."
