Some of The Faces Lost in Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’

In 1976, Argentina was taken over by a military junta with the aid of the United States government.  Over the next 7 years, 30,000 people ‘disappeared’…30,000 people that wouldn’t be at the dinner table, 30,000 people that wouldn’t live, laugh, cry or grow old.

Some people were kind enough to re-create family pictures from those days and you can plainly see someone is missing.
