A family is lunching under a mural making a tribute o “El torito de Mataderos”. The “bull of Mataderos” (Matadors is a Buenos Aires typical neighborhood), Justo Suarez was a popular Argentine light weight boxer who died at 29 years old. His huge popularity was widely greater than his professional achievements as a fighter. Suárez was the first sportsman that became an idol, having gained popularity in Argentina during the decade of the 1930s. Julio Cortazar dedicated him a tale: “Torito”. Buenos Aires.

Don’t forget Srebrenica


Every year, on July 11th, Srebrenica remembers one of the most horrific massacres in recent history. In 1995, during the Bosnian war, more than 8,000 Bosniaks – most of them, men – were brutally murdered ​​by Bosnian Serb troops. In this small town of Bosnia and Herzegovina, every year hundreds of bodies are buried in a collective funeral attended silently by thousands of people. Most of them are women, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, who survived from the murderous fury, and who gather at the memorial of Potocari to bid farewell to their loved ones. This woman is one of the faces of Srebrenica.
