SUMMARY

During the dictatorship in Argentina, 1976-1983, after they were born, 500 babies were torn from their mothers' arms by torturers who appropriated these children as spoils of war. As for the mothers, they have been murdered or are missing. Defying a powerful military state, a handful of grandmothers revolted. They embarked on a lonely and risky fight to find their grandchildren, “The 500 stolen babies from the dictatorship“. 35 years later, this story is far from over.
