... were disappeared today
About 30,000 people were "disappeared" in Argentina during the "dirty war". They were thirty thousand individual human beings, each one with his/her own story, dreams and hopes, with friends, parents and children who love them, remember them and clamor for the truth and justice they deserve. Thirty thousand people to whom all Argentinians owe the minimal homage of memory.
This online memorial to the Disappeared hopes to do exactly that: remember them as human beings. We are presenting homepages for some of them, about 600 so far, with pictures and other information about them. It's a slow process, but we promise, it will be constant. Memory will succeed.
You can visit the pages of the disappeared in several ways. Visit the Wall of Memory to see all their pictures together. That takes time, but we think it's the best way to envision the extension of the horror of the disappearances. Also, by looking at their pictures you may recognize a friend or a neighbor.
You can also look for friends or acquaintances by their names (no images) or by their professions or place of disappearance.
