We must not forget!

Dear friends,

Last week we commemorated the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances. Throughout the world, many families struggle with the consequences of this crime daily: agonizing uncertainty, social stigma and economic hardship, to name but a few.

No matter how long ago their loved ones were taken away, their wound is still open. “If I could find my husband and give him a funeral, I could die the next day. That is my only hope in life”, says Ema, who lives in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The families will not forget their loved ones, and neither must we. Please join us, therefore, in remembering the victims of enforced disappearances. And help us bring those they left behind closer to truth, justice and closure.

Thank you for your loyalty,

Gabriella Citroni, Senior Legal Advisor
