• Over two decades after the civil war, Salvadorans are still looking for their lost loved ones.
  • Decades later, no one has been held responsible for ordering these atrocities.
  • We cannot learn from our history until we confront the consequences it wrought.
  • The conflict that racked El Salvador was fueled by international forces, particularly the US government.

Our Mission

Unfinished Sentences is an initiative of the University of Washington Center for Human Rights to encourage public participation in support of human rights in El Salvador. Through this effort, we aim to document and share the stories of survivors of crimes against humanity committed in the context of El Salvador’s armed conflict, and to support Salvadoran efforts for truth and accountability.
