Horrors of Guatemala war subject of photo exhibition
“This struggle is not just their struggle, it’s our struggle,” said human rights activist and photographer Jonathan Moller at a reception for his photography exhibit, “Our Culture is Our Resistance," showing at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures in Bloomington, Ind.
The Indiana Daily Student reports that Moller discussed his experiences chronicling the brutal violence of Guatemala's 36-year civil war, which ended in 1996. He said the worst killing during years of fighting in Central America was the Guatemalan government's campaign against the country's indigenous, who represent between 60% and 65% of the population. The civil war left more than 200,000 people dead or disappeared, mostly civilians.
