I have never been in war. So, I hesitate to say anything about the injuries of war but the concept of Transgenerational Transmission of Trauma (TTT) helps me to think about the footprints of war surrounding me. I will focus on three types of TTT. First, transmission through unconscious processes in society as a whole; second, transmission through related media; and third, direct and indirect transmission within family. These overlap with one another and develop hand-in-hand.

Nunca estuve en la guerra. Por ello me cuesta decir cualquier cosa sobre las heridas de guerra, pero el concepto de Transmisión Transgeneracional del Trauma (TTT) me ayuda a pensar sobre las huellas de la guerra que me rodean. Me centraré en tres tipos de TTT. Primero, la transmisión por procesos inconscientes en la sociedad global; segundo, la transmisión a través de medios relacionados; y tercero, la transmisión directa e indirecta dentro de la familia. Se solapan entre sí y se desarrollan mano-a-mano.
