Dearest Amalia (A Letter to my disappeared Sister) Lucia Marroquin Let us remember those who were detained and disappeared and were pregnant during the dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983). W ere they murdered before or after giving birth? W ere their children miscarried? Or did they too disappear in an adoption ring, after having been born? These children are men and women in their thirties, whose family history remains unknown, erased or buried.
