San Juan Comalapa, Chimaltenango, Guatemala

Members of the National Coordination of Guatemalan Widows (CONAVIGUA) celebrate All Souls Day, or the Day of the Dead, at the former military garrison in San Juan Comalapa. Between 2003 and 2005, dozens of exhumations carried out at the former military outpost rendered the human remains of 179 wartime victims killed by the state forces. In 2010, CONAVIGUA inaugurated a memorial chapel deemed Nimajay, or big house in the local Maya Kakchiquel language, where the family members can honour those killed during the internal armed conflict.
