Exhibit Gives Glimpse into Guatemala's Troubled Past

Jonathan Moller's 2000 photograph "Daniel holds a photograph of his father, massacred in 1982"

This spring the Handwerker Gallery exhibit Refugees Even after Death: A Quest for Truth, Justice, and Reconciliation, cosponsored by Amnesty International, provided viewers with a look into Guatemala’s harrowing history.

The exhibition displayed photographs by Jonathan Moller depicting the uncovering of hidden mass graves. During Guatemala’s 36-year civil war, which ended in 1996, thousands of people went missing. Since these mass graves were uncovered over the past 10 to 15 years, Guatemalans have been identifying bodies and performing burial rituals.
