The ESMA Memory Site Museum in Argentina is a former clandestine center of detention, torture and extermination during the Argentine dictatorship between 1976 and 1983. A symbol of Argentinian history, it is at the same time an institution of international relevance as it provides yet another evidence of human rights abuses and crimes against humanity, which must never be forgotten.  

The nomination of the ESMA Museum and Site of Memory as a candidate for the Unesco World Heritage List seeks to raise international awareness about these crimes.
