Peru: Drawing our memory

The Peruvian forensic anthropology institute EPAF and Vicente Cueto have initiated a projected called "Pintemos nuestra memoria" (Drawing our Memory), in which relatives of the disappeared in Peru are given the diagrams of the human body used by forensic anthropologists in their work and encourage to draw on them. Rather than using them for their original purpose of indicating wound sites, they can become a simple, portable form of commemoration for the missing person. 

You can hear one of the participants in the project discussing his grandfather and his drawing in this video in Spanish with English subtitles:
