WORLD HIST - A national commission formed by a South American government estimates that, during a period from 1976 to 1983 in what has come to be known as the Dirty War (Guerra Sucia), 13,000 individuals in the country were killed or disappeared. Name the country.
The Dirty War doesn’t have its own musical, but covers a tumultuous and tragic period of Argentina’s history. Isabel Peron was ousted by a military coup that instated the National Reorganization Process. It was Argentina’s defeat in the Falkland War that lead to the junta’s eventual downfall. The first democratically elected president to follow the junta, Raul Alfonsin, investigated the Dirty War. This investigation lead to the Nunca Mas (Never Again) report, a perennial best-seller in Argentina. Alfonsin attempted to straddle a line of prosecution against the military and appeasement to prevent further coups, but was eventually ousted from office in 1989, ceding his office 6 months in advance of the presidential elections.
