Violence: Guatemalan Genocide Survivor Jesús Tecú

Language: Spanish

Guatemalan survivor Jesús Tecú speaks about his parents going into town to take care of business in 1982, and never returning home. He later discovered that they were killed that day during the massacre Río Negro. Tecú’s testimony was recorded through a partnership with  La Fundación de Antropología Forense de Guatemala (FAFG), a Guatemalan forensics organization, to collect video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Guatemalan Genocide, which killed some 200,000 civilians in the early 1980s, mainly indigenous Mayans.
