Olimpio, where they held los desaparecidos

From your hands, we take the flags, until victory forever!

Olimpo is one of three main "military schools" in the Buenos Aires area where los desaparecidos were held and tortured before being killed

A room for torture. There were no windows then

faces of los desaparecidos

This they couldn´t destroy, history of the lives of the detained disapeared comrades of Olimpo

  1. I had a teacher in school. She is from Argentina. She told us how people used to be butchered by the regime. On that time education was only to memorising text books. students were not allow to criticise ideas on any laval of education not even in unis.

    • Yeah, Argentina´s history is brutal, democracy is still a new topic here and it is interesting to see, some people wish that the government had a slightly firmer hand, but how far is too far? Definately during the time of the military dictatorships when no personal opinion regarding politics or dissent towards the government was tolerated was too far, but where do you draw the line? Any type of firmer hand and its not a democracy….and if the military gets involved again, I dont think they have varying degrees of involvement, its either involved, or not, and in the past it was not a pretty sight. Who knows what is the solution for Argentina. It is a heated debate for sure.
