Disappearances in the Post-Transition Era in Latin America

Lulú Herrera

Paula Cuellar Cuellar

British Academy

Lulú Herrera tells her story of the search for her disappeared husband, eight-year-old son, and two brothers-in-law. In the process, Herrera discovered others searching for the disappeared and with them she became a founding member of the organisation Forces United for Our Disappeared in Coahuila, Mexico. She realised how invisible these disappearances are even when the numbers are so high. Indeed, they were unknown to her before her own life was transformed by disappearance. She was forced to become a different person to be able to carry out the search. A search that continues for her family members and those of others in Coahuila.
