On June 27, 1973, a coup overthrew power in Uruguay. A military dictatorship was then installed for 12 years. During this period, it is estimated that there were more than 6,000 political prisoners, for approximately three million inhabitants. The country now counts nearly 200 “desaparecidos” (the disappeared, in Spanish), Uruguayans kidnapped by the government to silence all opposition, and whose bodies have never been found. Fifty years later, the families want to know the fate of their missing loved ones. A report by Eléonore Vanel.
