March 24

42 years after the coup that marked the beginning of our last civic-military dictatorship, the Centro Ana Frank joined the march of March 24, National Day of Memory for Truth and Justice, convened by the Human Rights organisms.

From the Centro Ana Frank, we work daily so that acts of humanity, such as those that occurred during the last civic-military dictatorship of our country, never happen again.

For memory, truth and justice!
