“HISTORICAL MEMORY TO BRING JUSTICE FROM THE 36 YEARS OF INTERNAL STRIFE” PRESENTATION AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY APRIL 20-21

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Domingo Tum Mejía of the Guatemalan grassroots organization Historical Memory will visit Viterbo University to present “Historical Memory to Bring Justice from the 36 Years of Internal Strife” Monday, April 20 and Tuesday, April 21.

Historical Memory was organized to achieve justice for crimes committed during Guatemala’s 36-year internal conflict. During his presentation, Mejía will speak about the importance of historical memory in enhancing our understanding of ongoing repression against marginalized groups of people.

Presentations will be held April 20 at 11 a.m. and 1:10 p.m. in Murphy Center room 348 and at 4:10 p.m. in Murphy Center room 378 and April 21 at 9:30 a.m. in Reinhart Center room 130.

Mejía’s childhood memories, as well as the history of his family, his community, his region, and his country, have propelled him to fight nationally and internationally to achieve justice for the genocide that took the lives of his parents.

Each lecture is free and open to the public. They will be given in Spanish and translated by Viterbo alumna Melinda Van Slyke ’97.
