Guatemala City, Guatemala

Stacks of boxes containing human remains exhumed from hundreds of clandestine graves stored at the headquarters of the Forensic Anthropology Foundation of Guatemala (FAFG) waiting for DNA matching to come forward in order that they can be returned to their family members for burial. Formed in 1992, due to the increasing demands for forensic work, the FAFG focuses on exhuming, identifying and properly burying the thousands of missing wartime victims from Guatemala's internal armed conflict. FAFG's own Forensic Genetics Laboratory in Guatemala City is the only one of its kind in the region and has been operating since late 2010 and has rendered positive identification of dozens of wartime victims from numerous regions. The laboratory was conceived following the models and experiences of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) in Bosnia, and the technology developed to identify the victims of the World Trade Center (WTC) terrorist attacks.
