Memory Park in Belgrano, Buenos Aires, Argentina

A dark period in Argentine history was from 1976 until 1983. After the military seized power, the new dictatorship launched a campaign of brutal repression called the National Reorganization Process. Their crimes included torture, murders and countless disappearances. The 34.5 acre Memory Park along the Río de la Plata was created to honor and remember the victims. Among the 18 sculptures in Parque de la Memoria is this untiled piece by Roberto Aizenberg. The silhouettes represent his pregnant wife and children who went missing in 1976 as a result of the “Dirty War.”
