At the Argentine Embassy, London

It was a pleasure to speak Tuesday 4th October 2022 at the Argentine Embassy here in London at a panel discussion with the wonderful Cecilia Meirovich, Director of Human Rights of the Cancillería Argentina and chaired by Minister Alessandra Viggiano Marra, Cultural Attaché of the Embassy.

At the beautiful Official Residence we spoke about the ESMA Museo Sitio de Memoria ESMA

and its candidacy for the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO . The event was co-organized with Canning House , and introduced by Lord Mountevans, Honorary President of Canning House (pictured here).

In the debate we looked at the ex-ESMA as a site of memory, as a museum, as judicial evidence and above all, as a symbol of the post-1984 democratic consensus, and the three pillars Memory, Truth and Justice.
