Remembering the Deadly AMIA Bombing in Buenos Aires

On July 18, 1994 at 9:53 a.m., a suicide bomber drove a van loaded with more than 600 pounds of explosives into the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) building in Buenos Aires. 85 people were killed, and hundreds more were injured.

Twenty-five years later, the AMIA bombing remains Argentina’s deadliest terrorist attack to date, the largest massacre of Jews since World War II, and a case plagued by political dispute. The Consulate General of Argentina in New York searches for truth and justice in the exhibition, 25 – Veinticinco: Fotografias de Julio Menajovsky.

Duggal’s Ashma Vohra worked with the Consulate to produce Menajovsky’s heart-wrenching photos on Vibrachrome. The 38 aluminum prints are on display and open to the public from June 28 through July 31, 2019. Learn more and RSVP here.
