Cabá region, Communities of Population in Resistance (CPR) of the Sierra Quiché,
Guatemala, 1993.

Domingo poses with his radio, one of his families few non-essential possessions, and virtually their only link to the outside world.

One night in 1980, when he was only three years old, soldiers came to Domingo’s house and dragged away his older brother and sister. They were never seen again. His mother and father gathered Domingo and his two young brothers, and fled that same night.

With deep sadness in his voice he finished his story:

“Many were killed that night in our village, and the soldiers started burning all the houses. Those that were not killed or burned alive fled into the mountains.”
