The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) has been presented as an exemplar tool related to subjects as memory reconstruction or reconciliation; none the less, several criticisms have been made in relation to its results. This essay focuses on the criticisms related to the exclusion of some discourses from the end results of the TRC, such as those from women, ex combatants and forced removals. Those discourses, whether they were absent form the conclusions of TRC, have found different ways to expose themselves, completing with this, the version of South African history and apartheid deduced from the Commission.
