Description


From 1976 until 1983, in Argentina, the military planned to exterminate all their antagonists. For approximately 5,000 opponents of the Argentine dictatorship, “destino final” (final destination) gained an atrocious meaning: drugged, unconscious, and loaded on military planes, in what is infamously known as the “death flights”, they were thrown, still alive, to the Río de la Plata, just before it reaches the Atlantic Ocean; their final, definitive destination. Just a few of their bodies were recovered. Their families are still looking for their remains and seeking punishment for the guilty.
Destino Final, started in 2003 as a long-term project, and includes the search for the death flight planes, conducted worldwide by Giancarlo Ceraudo and Miriam Lewin.

Desde 1976 hasta 1983 los militares argentinos llevaron adelante un plan para exterminar a todos sus opositores. Para aproximadamente 5.000 de ellos el “destino final” adquirió un significado atroz: narcotizados, inconscientes y cargados en aviones militares, eran arrojados aún vivos al Río de la Plata en su unión con el océano Atlántico, en lo que se conoce tristemente como los “vuelos de la muerte”. Su destino definitivo, final. Sólo algunos de sus cuerpos fueron recuperados. Sus familiares todavía están buscando sus restos y piden castigo para los culpables.
Destino Final es un proyecto de largo plazo que comenzó en el 2003, e incluye la búsqueda de los aviones de los vuelos de la muerte llevada adelante en todo el mundo por Giancarlo Ceraudo y Miriam Lewin.
