What you'll do

“Become an eyewitness to an obscure period of our history and have a unique experience with the dark side of Argentina” You will explore the following: Memorial plaques of the disappeared people. Incredible murals (paintings & graffiti) on the topic. The individuals, history, and struggles they represent. An ex-Clandestine Center, often called the Auschwitz of Argentina: You won’t be exploring the areas that are closed while archaeological techniques of restoration, conservation, and evidence-gathering work proceeds. But the most interesting things, for the most part, are easily seen from the outside. These terrible places are important for understanding Argentina, and are a visceral depiction of the wide reach of the military dictatorship in its ability to terrorize the local population. As I am a living history, I will tell you the interesting facts you need to know to understand the worst, most brutal and most violent dictatorship in Argentinean history. I am willing to share with you what it was like to live through that dark period in Argentina’s history. Also, you will hear recorded testimonies and examine unique documents. We will also talk about the military Nazi ideology

Where you'll be

A massive complex that was a Clandestine Center of Detention, Torture and Annihilation, often called the Auschwitz of Argentina. It was a place dedicated to the kidnapping and torture of suspected dissidents that functioned during the last military dictatorship (1976-1983). We will also talk about a couple of the worst aspects of the dictatorship: the systematic theft of babies and the Nazi ideology that permeated the military forces.
