Remembrance and Justice: A Special Conversation with the President of Argentina, H.E. Alberto Fernández, on the 26th Anniversary of the AMIA attack
It has been twenty-six years since AMIA – the institutional heart of Argentine Jewry – was targeted in a devastating terrorist attack perpetrated by Iran's proxy, Hezbollah.
Since the immediate aftermath of the attack and until the present day, AJC has been calling for justice and accountability for the single deadliest antisemitic incident since the Second World War. Over the past several years, after a turbulent investigative journey, Argentina has laudably identified Iran as responsible for the attack, designated all of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, and adopted the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism, with AJC’s active encouragement and support.
Today, despite the unprecedented difficulties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and domestic challenges in Argentina, President Alberto Fernández is strengthening ties with the United States, with Israel, and with the Jewish community in Argentina and around the world.
Join AJC for this historic conversation between President Fernández and Dina Siegel Vann, Director of AJC's Belfer Institute for Latino and Latin American Affairs, to pay tribute to the 85 victims of the AMIA attack and raise our collective voices against terrorism and antisemitism in all its forms.
