Excerpt
During Guatemala's 35-year civil war, which ended in 1996, the term to disappear had a special significance: it meant abduction, torture, and execution at the hands of the Guatemalan security forces. By the time a peace accord was signed, over 150, 000 people were dead, and some 0, 000 Guatemalan citizens had vanished, leaving family and friends to grieve without even a corpse to bury. The Guatemalan government has consistently denied knowledge of its victims fates; it can do so no longer. This document, smuggled out of the military's own archives in February just two days before a Guatemalan truth commission published its findings, lists 183 names (of which Teresa Graciela Samayoa Morales's is the first), each carefully catalogued in what amounts to a daily log of death squad activities. This list is the only known record of its kind, an accounting from inside the secret files of Guatemala's killing machine.
