Title: Memories And Representations Of The Disappeared High School Students During The Last Argentine Civil-military Dictatorship (1976 -1983) [memórias E Representações Dos Estudantes Secundaristas Desaparecidos Durante A última Ditadura Civil-militar Argentina(1976 -1983)]
Author: Tolentino M.
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the memories and representations produced about the "disappeared" in post-dictatorial Argentina focusing on a specific profile of victims: high school students who "disappeared". This profile was used to denounce the systematic human rights violations committed over the last seven years of civil-military dictatorship (1976 -1983), mainly to challenge the arguments of the regime to support the "war against subversion". Our goal is to point out how, as of the first complaints during the dictatorship, a specific profile of victims who only shared the fact that they were teenagers and high school students when kidnapped and disappeared was built. We observed that there is a permanence of this representation even in democratic times, particularly in its repeated use as a major vehicle of denunciation of the human rights violations during the last civil-military dictatorship. We will then present what elements conformed this profile, as well as those that are silenced and forgotten in the different memories produced about the students who "disappeared", and the consequences of their reiteration to an critical understanding of the conditions under which such disappearances occurred.
