Post- armed conflict

Lately, I’ve been reading (and in some cases, re-reading) books on the history of Guatemala, many of which address the country’s 36-year armed conflict, and its long-term effects. Today, this photo-essay on Upside Down World by James Rodriguez, on the exhumation of remains of wartime victims, appeared on my Guatemalan Google alert. The powerful pictures and words speak for themselves.
