Abducted, Tortured, Vanished
From the moment of their abduction, the victims lost all rights. Deprived of all communication with the outside world, held in unknown places, subjected to barbaric tortures, kept ignorant of their immediate or ultimate fate, they risked being either thrown into a river or the sea, weighted down with blocks of cement, or burned to ashes. They were not mere objects, however, and still possessed all the human attributes: they could feel pain, could remember a mother, child or spouse, could feel infinite shame at being raped in public...
[Nunca Mas prologue, Ernesto Sabato]
Although there are very few testimonies in this page, each one of them represents the thousands of documented cases which tell a similar story - the personal horror of men, women and children who were victims of their own government.

The disappeared memorial (work in progress)A web site intended to publish the names photos and stories of the victims of human rights violations in Argentina. The list is based on the report of the National Commission on the Disappeared (CONADEP), which contains close to 9,000 files of desaparecidos abducted between 1976-1983 plus contributions from families and friends of the disappeared. Human Rights organizations estimate that about 30,000 people disappeared during those years.
