Alejandra’s García's father Fernando was disappeared by the military dictatorship in 1984 when she was barely two years old. In response, her mother Nineth Montenegro began the first human rights organization in Guatemala, the Mutual Support Group (GAM) to search for him and the other disappeared persons. As Alejandra came of age, she decided to become a lawyer to avenge the death of her father. With the discovery of the secret National Police Archives in Guatemala City, documents were discovered that named the perpetrators of her father’s disappearance. Armed with this evidence, Alejandra went to trial in October 2010.
