On July 18, 1994, terrorists bombed the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) in Buenos Aires, the central offices of the Argentine Jewish community, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds more.  No one has ever been held criminally accountable for the crime.  Southwestern’s symposium includes leading attorneys, professors and Jewish Community leaders from Argentina and the United States who have participated in the investigation of the bombing, studied the failures in its investigations and dealt with the repercussions for the Argentine Jewish community of the bombing and resulting impunity.
