Additional Event Notes

During Argentina’s Dirty War in the 1970s, a group of students from the Carlos Pellegrini High School in Buenos Aires were abducted by the military and taken to the "Vesubio" secret detention center. Many of them were never seen again and today are among the thousands who disappeared. Alejandra Naftal was 17 when abducted and she is among the few survivors of "Vesubio" whose stories are recounted in Flores de Septiembre. Today, Alejandra Naftal is the general director of the Oral Testimony Archives project of the non-profit organization Memoria Abierta ("Open Memory") dedicated to preserving the memory of Dirty War victims.

General Classroom Bldg. at Georgia State University is located at the corner of
