Guatemalan Anthropologists speaking at CNC

Two anthropology experts from Guatemala will share horror stories of genocide, crime, mass disasters, child trauma and murder of pregnant women during a public forum at the College of New Caledonia.

Shirley Chacon and Alma Vasquez, forensic anthropologists and archaeologists, have worked on several high-profile cases around the world, including Guatemala’s 30-year civil war in which more than 200,000 people were killed in conflict between 1960 and 1996.

Chacon works on cases of genocide, contemporary crimes and mass disasters for the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation, and will speak about children’s traumas during the civil war.
