#BuenosAires: In Footstep of Dictators & Auschwitz - No Kids

Become an eyewitness to an obscure period of our history and have a unique experience with the dark side of Argentina.

You will explore the following:

An ex-Clandestine Center, often called the Auschwitz of Argentina located in the city of Buenos Aires...

Memorial plaques of the disappeared people...

Incredible murals (paintings & graffiti) on the topic. The individuals, history, and struggles they represent...

An ex-clandestine Center of Detention, Torture and Annihilation that was a place dedicated to the kidnapping and torture of suspected dissidents. They functioned during the last military dictatorship that took place in Argentina from 1976 to 1983...

This massive complex contained areas where political prisoners were detained and barbarously tortured. We are not going inside the place. You won’t be touring the areas that are closed while archaeological techniques of restoration, conservation, and evidence-gathering work proceeds. But the most interesting things, for the most part, are easily seen from the outside.

These terrible places are important for understanding Argentina, and are a visceral depiction of the wide reach of the military dictatorship in its ability to terrorize the local population. The kidnapped people were systematically dehumanized; they experienced atrocities and lived in terrible conditions.

As I am a living history, I will tell you the interesting facts you need to know to understand the worst, most brutal and most violent dictatorship in Argentinean history. I am willing to share with you what it was like to live through that dark period in Argentina’s history.

And, finally, you will hear some testimonies.
