Finding Oscar Film Screening

05:30PM - 08:15PM Yuma Building - YT01-01

Finding Oscar is a documentary about the pursuit of justice for victims of the Dos Erres Massacre in Guatemala during that country’s civil war. The film chronicles the efforts of the team responsible for uncovering the truth of the massacre and their search for one of the only survivors, a young boy spared and raised by one of the very soldiers who killed his family: Oscar Ramirez.

Please join the War Crimes Research Office of American University Washington College of Law, the Benjamin Ferencz International Justice Initiative of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Unit of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement National Security Investigations Division for a screening of Finding Oscar on November 8, followed by a panel discussion moderated by War Crimes Research Office Director Susana SáCouto. Refreshments will be served prior to the showing of the film.
