The National Center for Historical Memory’s (NCHM) purpose is to contribute to the comprehensive reparation and to the right to the truth for the victims of the Colombian armed conflict as well as society in general. The Center accomplishes this by reconstructing, through the testimony of victims, the serious human rights violations that occurred in the framework of the conflict, searching for truth, justice, reparation and the construction of a sustainable and lasting peace.

We enable the collective construction of memory through dialogs with inhabitants of the regions where episodes of violence happened, and by engaging them through workshops, talks, interviews, research, exhibitions and photographic and audio-visual explorations which give the voices of victims of the regions hardest struck by the conflict a privileged position.

We are also a platform for the articulation, compilation, inclusion and increased visibility of the plural memories of Colombia’s armed conflict, emphasizing the victims’ perspective, in order to contribute to the historical clarification and to provide assurances of non-repetition.

All of the information gathered by the National Center of Historical Memory is made available to victims as well as to educational institutions, international cooperation partners, public institutions, and citizens in general through different museum activities, including educational, academic and cultural initiatives that enrich the knowledge of Colombia’s political and social history.
