Ovaherero Genocide Foundation

1976 Argentina

Dry War

 From 1976 through 1983 at least 10,000 people up to possibly 30,000 disappeared in Argentina in what is known as the “Dirty War”. General Jorge Videla led theH military and they kidnapped, imprisoned, tortured, and killed anyone that they suspected involved with left-wing guerrillas. People were also thrown out of airplanes over the Atlantic Ocean. The United States gave financial and military assistance to Videla to help with the genocide.
