Join the  Holocaust Museum Houston for an evening with Fredy Peccerelli, the Executive Director of FAFG, The Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation (Fundación de Antropología Forense de Guatemala), a nonprofit contributing to the strengthening of the justice system and the respect for human rights through the investigation and documentation of historic violations of the right to life in cases of non-clarified deaths.

FAFG utilizes the latest technology in forensic anthropology, along with interview techniques, to achieve these aims as quickly, precisely, and cost-efficiently as possible. FAFG works to contribute to historical clarification, the dignification of victims, and the search for justice.

The FAFG Archive of Visual Histories (AHV) is the result of a joint effort with the USC Shoah Foundation to collect audiovisual testimonies from survivors and witnesses of the Internal Armed Conflict (CAI) to promote reconciliation, encourage investigation and support educational goals in Guatemala and the world.

Since 2015, the FAFG has recorded more than 650 life history interviews. Of these, 31 have already been indexed, subtitled, and integrated into the USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive.

Learn more about the Guatemalan Genocide thru testimony.  Explore the testimony-based and classroom-ready suite of activities-- in English and Spanish--from USC Shoah Foundation’s award winning educational platform, IWitness. Guatemalan testimony collection provided by Fundación de Antropologia Forense de Guatemala.
