Title: Blood, Identity And Historical Truth: Disappeared Children And Memories Of The Dictatorship In Argentina [sangue, Identidade E Verdade Histórica: Crianças Desaparecidas E Memórias Sobre O Passado Dictatorial Na Argentina]
Author: Sanjurjo L.L.
Abstract: This article discusses child abduction during the latest Argentinian military dictatorship (1976-1983) and intents to understand how the members of the disappeared relatives' organizations are reconfiguring, based on their kinship with the victims of the repression, their identities and political strategies in the disputes for the definition of a public memory about the recent dictatorial past. Exploring the topic of Child Abduction through the notion of Critical Event (DAS, 1995), I analyze some national controversies regarding the process of identity restitution of the abducted grandsons of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo. The object of my analysis are the debates concerning the passage of the DNA Law - Lei de DNA - to solve open cases of abducted children that refuse to take the DNA test willingly. I intent to explore how notions about kinship, blood, identity and historical truth play a key-role on the disputes over the memories.
