Jonathan Moller, Two sisters watch as the remains of their mother and four small siblings are exhumed. The sisters, together with their brother, were there that day in August of 1982 when their relatives were shot by soldiers, but managed to escape. They spent 14 years in hiding under the cover of the mountains with the Communities of Population in Resistance (CPR) of the Sierra, before returning to settle in a new community, and requesting the exhumation of the remains of their loved ones. San Francisco Javier, Nebaj, Quiché, Guatemala, 2000, 2000
