James Herzog sees mourning as a precondition for the healing of transgenerational trauma. 14 It is important to remember that this dynamic is not restricted to the victims of violence and their children. It also holds for perpetrators and their children, albeit in different ways.

When he finally discovers an old photo of Simon, he recognizes himself in his brother’s image: ‘At last I had seen Simon: photos of him filled several pages. His face seemed strangely familiar. I could see myself in those features, if not that body’ (S, p. 136).
