Peru: knitting for hope in Ayacucho
27-08-2010 Film Ref. CR-F-01071-W1
Peru's internal violence in the 1980s and 1990s left 15,000 people missing. So far, the fate of only 10% is known: either they were found alive, or their remains were found, identified and handed over to their families. In Ayacucho, wives, mothers and sisters gather to knit a scarf with the names of their missing relatives embroidered on it.
