The Lost Children of the Dirty War

This heart-breaking gallery documents the 500 children who went missing during the Dirty War pursued by the junta government of Argentina from 1976 through 1983. These infants were born to women who had been arrested by the junta; after the mothers were "disappeared" (murdered, usually by being thrown from aircraft into the ocean), the children were then given up for adoption to friends of the military government, but without records. To this day, their families do not know where they are. The human rights group Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo - the brave grandmothers of the missing children - has worked for decades to discover their identities. To date, only about 10% of these missing children have been found. The gallery displays photographs and offers descriptions of individual cases as well as a history of this dark period in Argentinian history.
