Executive producer: C.A. Tuggle
Some people know little about los desaparecidos of Argentina. As many as 30,000 dissidents of the military dictatorship were kidnapped, tortured and killed during The Dirty War, between 1976 and 1983. In Argentina today, there is a movement underway headed by a group called Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, or The Grandmothers of May Plaza.
These women are dedicated to finding their missing grandchildren, the babies who were taken from pregnant women during the Dirty War. The women were captured and murdered and their babies were given to supporters of the military regime. Now in their 20s and 30s, these “lost” grandchildren have no knowledge of their past or of their true identities. Las Abuelas is trying to change that. Through direct interviews with Las Abuelas, the found grandchildren, and other members of their families and communities, we seek to tell the story as it is still unfolding and bring the historical and cultural context that is needed to help people around the world understand the impact that such a crisis has for people from many different generations.
“Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo and the Search for Identity” will premiere Jan. 17, 2012, at 7 p.m. at the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication. J-school professor C.A. Tuggle served as executive producer.

Garzón: ‘Pope Francis should release Vatican files on dictatorship’
Former Spanish judge Baltasar Garzón said Pope Francis “could perfectly open the Vatican files to make public all communications and information sent from Argentina at the time of the last military dictatorship.”
Garzón considered such a move would be “very positive and proof of cooperation and support to the victims of state terrorism.”
The former judge was referring to any cables that diplomats may have sent to the Vatican during the last military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983.
Garzón believes that those judges currently leading the investigation of cases of crimes against humanity should be the ones that request the publication of those files.
“As a judge, I would do it,” he said.
