NEWS honored the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team

Justice and memory are the only guarantees of not repeating the past. On its 34th birthday, NEWS wanted to recognize the work of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (EAAF) for its efforts in finding and identifying the remains of people who disappeared during the dictatorship, a mission that continues to this day.

The EAAF is a non-governmental, scientific, non-profit organization that was formed in 1984. Therefore, at the event of this magazine in Congress, where the 40 years of democracy were celebrated, Mariella Fumagalli, forensic anthropologist, coordinator of the Unit responsible for planning and carrying out searches for clandestinely buried bodies and Analía González Simonetto, coordinator of the Forensic Anthropology laboratory, were in charge of receiving the distinction.

Culture editor Adriana Lorusso presented the award.

“We want to thank the magazine for this distinction, for this privilege. Coincidentally, next year our team will celebrate 40 years since its birth. Always with the same purpose: that science serves to do Justice,” said Analía González Simonetto. And she added: “We have also had the privilege of identifying our soldiers in the Falkland Islands.”
