Grandmothers celebrate Guido's finding with BA City posters
Buenos Aires City woke up today wrapped up with posters celebrating the finding of Guido Carlotto, the grandson of the president of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo group.
“114 grandchildren recovered. Each of them, a prize to love and peace,” the Grandmothers say in the message that shows also a white dove, symbol of peace.
The courageous work carried out by these women for more than three decades struggling to find their grandchildren who were abudcted from their kidnapped sons and daughters, has been indeed recognized globally with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) granting the human rights group with the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize back in 2010.
Guido Carlotto – raised by a non-biological family as Ignacio Hurban – is the Grandomothers' 114th grandson. The National Bank of Genetic Data confirmed Guido is the son of Laura Carlotto and Walmis Oscar Montoya, both kidnapped and killed by the 1976-1983 military dictatorship.
