El Aquacate Massacre
Guatemala | 1988
During the 1980s Guatemala suffered a bloody civil war. Left wing insurgents battled against a government army that had no qualms against massacring entire villages.
The insurgents slowly regained their strength in the late 1980s. But then in November 1988 21 men from the village of El Aguacate, close to the town of Chimaltenango, disappeared. Their bodies were later found in mass graves.
