Producer, Niños de la Memoria

Niños de la Memoria tells the story of the search for hundreds of children who disappeared during the Salvadoran Civil War. Many were survivors of massacres carried out by the U.S.-trained Salvadoran army. Taken away from the massacre sites by soldiers, some grew up in orphanages or were adopted abroad, losing their history and identity. Niños de la Memoria weaves together three separate yet intertwined journeys in the search for family, identity and justice in El Salvador, and asks the larger question: How can a post-war society right the wrongs of the past?

 

Presented by Meridian International Center a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening international understanding through leadership exchange and cultural diplomacy in Partnership with YPFP.
