Guatemala: Families of the missing in the civil war fight against oblivion

Billet retour FRANCE 24 — 2016

"Where are they?" This is the question that is asked every 21 June in Guatemala, on the National Day of Enforced Disappearances. During the Civil War (1960-1996), 45,000 people disappeared. Every year, mass graves are discovered in the country, new victims are identified and their remains returned to families. Twenty years after the end of the war, tongues are getting untied and justice could finally begin to do its work.
