In a new photo essay on MiMundo.org, photojournalist James Rodríguez follows residents of Pambach, Guatemala, as they receive the skeletal remains of six wartime victims who were “taken by the army after a military incursion to the village on June 3rd, 1982, during the de facto government of Efraín Ríos Montt, and were never seen again.”

The victims were exhumed from a mass grave in May 2012 and returned to their families on November 22, 2013.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
