Rape victim meets attacker after 7 years
Katja Rosenberg, who was raped in 2006, met her attacker in prison in a Restorative Justice meeting.
I found it a rewarding, uplifting experience. Katja Rosenberg.
Although not suitable for all victims of crime, it was clearly an extremely positive experience for Katja. She was not allowed to reveal any details of the meeting, but it lasted two and a half hours.
She decided to forgive her attacker and this was a useful part of the process for her, though not a necessary part of a successful Restorative Justice meeting. Victims can choose whether to forgive or not. They may simply want to find out the other half of the story, like Larry did when he met his burglar, and tell the person who harmed them about the impact of their crime.
