Trauma of War

3 Generations has recorded veterans’ stories for over a decade. At any given time, there are millions of men and women returning from serving in the military during wartime. Both in the United States and across the globe, they have all faced the trauma of war. Many carry both visible and invisible wounds. Those with PTSD face tremendous challenges -- unemployment, poverty, and homelessness.

During our 15th year as a non-profit, we have reflected on the subjects we have met and the stories we have told of human rights abuses through film. We enable survivors of crimes against humanity to record their experiences as an act of healing, a call to action, and to create historical evidence. Our goal is to influence the national dialogue and build momentum for social change, as well as amplify the voices of intergenerational changemakers. 

We will continue documenting important stories of survivors and subjects of war, and we hope you continue being a part of our 3G community. Through our GlobalGiving project, Survivors of Genocide, we support survivors of war and genocide and those whose loved ones have experienced the traumas of war. This is evident in our upcoming feature documentary, HERE LIVED, which primarily focuses on the Dutch Stolpersteine project to commemorate Roma, Sinti, and disabled victims of National Socialism.

At 3 Generations, we advocate for all those who suffer. To view stories of courageous veterans and explore our films, please visit our website at and connect with us on social media at @3_generations. Thank you.
