Join Maru, a historian, educator and activist to learn about Argentina’s resolve to put behind a century marked by dictatorships. You will explore the context behind the different dictatorships, and learn about the brave people who against all odds stood up to defend democracy. You will learn about the “disappeared” Argentines and the generation that said: “Never Again.” Explore the social and psychological consequences of this period through the first Democratic Generation, and their commitment to sustain an “Active Memory.”
We’ll explore the scarred landmarks of sorrows and resistance: the Libertador building -stronghold of Argentina’s military- and Plaza de Mayo, the square that saw so many unelected presidents enter the Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace. Here we’ll see the marks of the 1955 bombing, as well as the symbols for the brave Mothers of May Square, who fought against power risking their lives. Finally, we’ll discuss the concept of “Active Memory” in a high school whose students were targeted disappeared to a clandestine detention center.
Fighting Bigotry with Democracy
Join the Democratic Generation: our parents lived through dictatorships, and now it’s up to us to see that history doesn’t repeat itself. You will learn about the concept of Active Memory and the commitment needed to support Democracy, wherever you may live.
