Buenos Aires
You will explore the following:
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. We can’t go inside the Ex-clandestine center. We can walk around the place where we can find incredible murals (paintings & graffiti) on the topic. The individuals, history, and struggles they represent. Actually, part of the Ex-clandestine center was dismantled before democracy returned and the areas of the cells were demolished, etc. and the most interesting things, for the most part, are easily seen from the outside.

You will hear some recorded testimonies.
A Clandestine Center of Detention, Torture and Annihilation was a place dedicated to the kidnapping and torture of suspected dissidents. They functioned during the last military dictatorship that took place from 1976 to 1983.
