  • The Parque de la Memoria from a political, social, humanitarian and historical point of view is extremely difficult in the Argentina of today, when they still alive claims of cross-accusations, recriminations and justice among people who represent or defend one or the other of those who fought - from the State, outside and against him - exercise extreme violence since the end of the Decade of the 1960s until the end of the dictatorship in 1983, causing thousands and thousands of dead, tortured and disappeared as a result of the systematic application of State terrorism. But this indirect ideological conflict between the two powers of the cold war, also caused many deaths and murders caused by terrorism and the actions of the forces guerrilla who sought the seizure of power. On the walls of the Parque de la Memoria are engraved on granite ledges the names and surnames of nearly 10,000 people, classified by the date (day, month and year) of his death, murder or disappearance. Listellos system allows that, sometimes, can be added to the wall the name of another victim without correct any listing. With the history to the surface, posing the view on those thousands of names, almost all ages, while we go slowly through the long, almost endless walls, it makes us a sense of unspeakable anguish, a return to a past not recent but alive, characterized by the still not healed wounds and by a society that seems to be under the effects of a deep traumatic Post disorder very difficult to overcome by way of consensus and the Union of all citizens. We visited the Park a sunny, windless day. At some point of the journey, he appeared before US the Río de la Plata - bathing the coasts of this park - deliberately. The river gained suddenly a role quite logical and necessary, having been the fate of thousands of victims thrown, even with life, from the flights of death. For to reflect on such tragedies is has built a species of spring that is delves in the River, already is to observe a group sculptural in bronze or to throw flowers to those waters Brown by the color of the limo that contain. The design of the Park seemed impeccable. The combination between the land and the River, figurative sculpture art, space, spacious and serene without Visual or physical blockages but that is can anticipate all the Park from the entrance, air and wind circulating free between the walls cenotaficas placed in zig-zag and a slow decline into the water - until you reach the center of information events and art exhibits visual as end of the route-, form an appropriate set to commemorate a heartbreaking human drama without appeal, in general, to low blows or ideological special effects (with exceptions). But as said above, ask make samples of visual art with certain historical balance on the violence applied by those involved in the two ideological extremes in those years of lead and, unfortunately, in the Centre of events seems premature in the current Argentina. Although in my view should be deleted, at least, a phrase engraved on one of the walls of the Cenotaph that denotes an ideological bias at all costs, to justify and in fact claiming the violence caused by many of the remembered in the Park to impose their ideas on the remaining majority. Unfairly, is a monument that recalls a terrible and bloody period that none of us want to repeat ever, ignoring that the Argentina has recovered since 1983 the democracy and the Republic even with imperfections. It is obvious that this IS a park NOT ATTRACTION but a place to reflect and meditate.
