FCIL-SIS Program: The Executive Committee Presents "Never Again, Never Forget: The Role of Libraries and Archives in Reconstructing Memory of Argentina's Dirty War"

During Argentina’s “Dirty War” (1976-1983), the military attempted to destroy all documents and physical evidence that thousands of people were arrested, tortured, murdered, and disappeared or forced into exile. Ms. Gloria Orrego Hoyos, the recipient of the 2011 FCIL Schaffer Grant for Foreign Law Librarians, will discuss the contribution of librarians and archivists as sources of law and information, and as protectors of evidence in the construction of a new democratic society and the restoration of rights, justice, heritage, memory, and identity.
