Textiles: Guatemala

Testimony and Textiles


This pattern by the artists of the Tejidos Cotzal Weaving Cooperative, many of whom are survivors of the Guatemalan Genocide, was chosen in collaboration with USC Shoah Foundation’s partner, the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation (FAFG). Working with FAFG, USC Shoah Foundation has launched a project to collect video testimonies of witnesses to the Guatemalan Genocide of the early 1980s.
