The Parque de la Memoria - Monumento a las Víctimas del Terrorismo de Estado (the Park of Memory- Monument to the Victims of State Terrorism) is a public space, located along the coastline of the Río de La Plata river in Buenos Aires City. Erected as a place for memory, it combines the force of a monument with the engraved names of the disappeared and
murdered persons by the State’s repression, and the critical approach elicited by a work of contemporary art and direct visual contact with the Río de La Plata river, silent witness to the fate of many of the victims.

Created in 1998, after the enactment of Law No. 46 by the Legislature of the city of Buenos Aires, the project was an unprecedented experience of collaboration: human rights organizations, the University of Buenos Aires and the Executive and Legislative Powers of the city worked jointly to make this space possible.

The Park is house to the Monumento a las Víctimas del Terrorismo de Estado, a Public Art Program and the PAyS Room and an educational program with visit guides to promote the exercise of memory as a practice to construct citizenship, to approach human rights from a historical and social perspective, to relate the recent past with current problems.
