We want to propose the study of memory and art as key elements in the Pedagogy of Peace with this didactic unit “Pedagogy of Memory. The Bombing of Guernica. Pedagogy of Peace through memory and art”.
For this reason, the general approach that can be glimpsed in this proposal is clearly linked to the answers that arise from the most elementary question in relation to memory and to answer the question, why remember?
Memory from a critical viewpoint in the field of Peacebuilding allows us to analyse the past in order to understand the present and to propose other ways of moving forward with hope and determination in the change of paradigm. It is necessary for us to go deeper into the paradigm if you want peace, prepare for peace, in order to leave behind the well-known and applied si vis pacem para bellum (if you want peace, prepare for war) which legitimises the use of violence in order to present it as inevitable.
