Testimonies: Relatives of the disappeared

A couple of weeks ago I found in youtube a half-hour documentary about the relatives of the disappeared in Argentina. This documentary belongs to a documentary series called 'Witness' which is broadcast daily in English by Al Jazeera Television. You will find testimomies of ordinary people that have been suffering for more than 30 years the lost of the loved ones. The documentary also shows the ways in which the relatives of the disappeared have coped with the trauma left, for instance, by the lost of a daughter or a mother.

The everyday struggle of a grandmother who wishes to find her grandson "Guido" born in a clandestine detention centre and the political engagement of a daugther of disappeared who fights for justice are some of the key elements you are going to find.
