The Disappeared

The unpredictability of life under Argentina's military rule, when people disappeared every day; the deep uncertainty that many families experienced in their daily existence, created all kinds of horrible feelings, most importantly, fear. In fact, fear and death were closely
related during those days. The military generated an atmosphere of terror by sending large numbers of armed soldiers who brutally bursted into people's houses, shouting and breaking glass windows and doors to grab they victims away form their homes.
