Abstract

The article is devoted to the analysis of strategies for overcoming historical traumas in a multi - confessional society. The subjects of a historical trauma choose denial of guilt, self-justification, awareness of responsibility, repentance as the main strategies of their behavior. The objects of a historical trauma can choose strategies of oblivion (silence), manifestation, forgiveness. At the same time, the strategy of manifestation is divided into several tactics, among which the tactics of "telling the truth", "restoring justice", "revenge" and "justifying by the victims by the actions of their offenders" are described. Only the tactics of "telling the truth" can lead to reconciliation although it does not guarantee automatic success. The strategies of overcoming the historical trauma should contribute to the restoration of social and spiritual health of the society. The most effective strategies in this regard are repentance and forgiveness. At the same time, forgiveness is the prerogative of the victims just like repentance is the prerogative of the guilty.
