Abstract:

The bomb that exploded at the AMIA is painful testimony to the fact that Argentina, like many other Latin American countries, has yet to develop a pluralistic national polity. The most vocal group in the fight to remember and to bring those responsible to justice is Memoria Activa, the significantly-named grassroots organization of private citizens, most but not all Jewish, most but not all relatives of the explosion’s victims. Women are the motor behind Memoria Activa, so much so that they have been called “las madres de la calle Pasteur,” the mothers of Pasteur Street.
