Abstract

Between the years 1975. and 1983 in Argentina, hundreds of children were kidnapped with their parents or were born during the imprisonment of their mothers in secret detention camps and were then given to persons or families generally connected with the repression body. This monstrousity was the product of a deliberate, organic and systematic plan put into execution by the Military Dictatorship in order to produce terror among the people and achieve their objectives. Important pediatric specialists have compared the situation to slavery. In general, the parents of these children are still missing.
