His mother, one of tens of thousands of ‘desparecidos‘, was three months pregnant at the time of her kidnapping and gave birth in 1977 at the former detention center, ESMA. This latest found niter is one of the estimated 400 newborns, who were kidnapped and distributed out to families by the dictatorship.
“I want to share this emotion and indescribable joy that I am alive to know the news that my nephew has been found” declared, Iris’ sister Alicia.
