An Argentina Grandmother Finds Her Grandson

An emo­tional Estela Barnes de Car­lotto, founder of the Grand­moth­ers of the Plaza de Mayo Argentina’s lead­ing human rights group announced Mon­day, that she had located the grand­son taken from her daugh­ter while a pris­oner of the mil­i­tary dic­ta­tor­ship in the 1970s. 36-year-old , Igna­cio Hur­ban, a pianist and com­poser @ a music school south­west of Buenos Aires, came for­ward on his own to have a DNA test taken because he had doubts about his own iden­tity. The Grand­moth­ers of the Plaza de Mayo believe around 500 chil­dren were seized from peo­ple killed by the dic­ta­tor­ship and given to cou­ples who sup­ported the gov­ern­ment. The group has so far helped to iden­tify 114 of the ille­gally adopted children.
