The Germans and German-origin victims of the Military Dictatorship in Argentina from 1976-1983 and the Reactions of the Federal Republic of Germany on this problem
Hello, my name is Sophia and I´m currently working on my PhD thesis at the Institute of Iberian and Latin American History at the University of Cologne.
I stayed Buenos Aires for three months in order to investigate the German and German-origin victims of the Military Dictatorship in Argentina from 1976 to 1983.
Working in the local archives and in close collaboration with colleagues from the University of San Martin (UNSAM) really brought my research a huge step forward.
The possibility to interview witnesses of the dictatorship was an exciting journey that together with my archival work will hopefully lead to the completion of the histories of German and German-origin victims.
