The Forgiveness Project shares stories of forgiveness in order to build hope, empathy and understanding.


Marian Partington

"During my time working in Bristol prison on a project about Restorative Justice, I came to understand that most perpetrators have been victims of abuse in their childhood"


Bud Welch

"About a year before the execution I found it in my heart to forgive Tim McVeigh. It was a release for me rather than for him."


Stanislav Krezic

"At first I didn’t really believe in it, but in fact, it was the best thing that could have happened to me because I realised there were others who had suffered much more than I had."
