Mural Unveiled at Site of 1994 Terror Attack in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – The AMIA Jewish social and cultural organization on Friday unveiled a giant graffiti mural at its Buenos Aires headquarters to pay homage to the victims and demand justice for a 1994 terrorist attack that left 85 dead and 300 injured.

Argentine street artist Martin Ron unveiled the “Wall of Memory” at a ceremony attended by survivors, relatives of the victims and AMIA employees.

The wall painting features a crowd of people holding up photographs of the dead and shows a young man climbing up a ladder even as another young man above him (or perhaps the same person) tries to climb down.

Sofia Guterman, who lost her only daughter in the attack and became emotional when she saw one of the survivors put the finishing touches on the mural, spoke during the ceremony.

The “suffering” continues because 2019 will be the “silver anniversary of the impunity,” Guterman said.

Argentina’s Jewish community blames Iran and Lebanese Shiite militia group Hezbollah for planning the bombing, which followed a 1992 terrorist attack on Israel’s embassy in Buenos Aires that left 29 people dead and more than 200 wounded.

Iran denies any responsibility for the AMIA attack.

Both bombings remain unsolved.

Family members of the victims and survivors gather at the entrance to AMIA every July 18 to demand justice in the case.
