I have a question about Gehinnam/Gehinnom which is often pictured as a big washing machine, a place for purification, a purgatory. But once I came across a teaching/scripture describing that at this moment of cleansing one would see his errors; one's sins would become known to himself, HaShem and to the public, revealed in the open, which causes a deep embarrassment, pain and sorrow.
Point is, I can't find the sources describing this. The closest thing I could find is a story/description about R'Yisrael Shklover page 74-77 who's talking about the custom to do and recite viduy (confession) and says: If we openly confess our sins, the embarrassment we feel as a result of their being made public will in itself be an atonement for us. In its merit we will go directly to Gan Eden, and not to Gehinnom.
Does anyone know any sources which talk about this kind of 'healing, cleansing, purifying from the pain of being confronted with one's sins' ?
