Genocide in Guatemala
According to Lehman Anthropology Professor Victoria Sanford, members of the Guatemalan Army were responsible for the vast majority of these acts, yet only eight people were charged. Professor Sanford was a research consultant for the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation Report to the Guatemalan Truth Commission in 1998.
In this podcast, she shares a survivor's story and discusses the political aspect of these crimes that still haunts the country today. Professor Sanford spoke in Korea recently on the 60th Anniversary of the JeJu April Third Uprising.
