Vatican to Open Its Archives on Argentine Military Dictatorship

VATICAN CITY – The Catholic Church of Argentina is to open its archives related to the military dictatorship, announced the Church on Tuesday.

A joint statement by the Secretariat of the Vatican City and the Argentine Episcopal Conference said their archives, along with the archives of the Apostolic Nunciature in Argentina, would be opened to allow victims’ families to consult the files.

“It should be emphasized that this work has been done in the service of truth, justice and peace,” read the statement.

The availability of this material followed a process of digitization and organization which ended Tuesday.

Different organizations, such as the Argentine Association for the Families of the Disappeared or the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, have asked Pope Francis during meetings to open these archives, which could contain information over the whereabouts of disappeared people.

The Argentine military dictatorship, which lasted from 1976-1983, is believed to have resulted in the deaths of 11,000 people and the disappearance of at least 30,000 more.
