Guatemala struggles to find war crimes justice

Two good articles recently covered the Guatemala secret police archive project that we are supporting. Guatemala struggles to find war crimes justice was in the San Francisco Chronicle, and captures the personal side of this work. Many people want to know what happened to those who disappeared in Guatemala's civil war.'s Digging for the truth quotes Benetech's Tamy Guberek and notes that our Martus software is being used in the project. Finally, it notes the time pressure that often accompanies our projects. This project is supposed to be completed this year, and only a fraction of the 80 million documents will have been touched. What will happen after that is a very interesting open question.
