It was Peru‘s deadliest conflict. During the 1980s and 90s tens of thousands were killed and thousands more forcibly disappeared when the Maoist guerrillas of the Shining Path unleashed violence against the very people they claimed to defend. Atrocities were also committed by Peru’s security forces who used torture and forced disappearances during a state-sponsored campaign of counter-terror.

Now, against all the odds, Peru has opened a museum of historical memory to commemorate the dead – and to address the country’s enduring polarisation over human rights abuses committed by the armed forces.

In 2003, a truth and reconciliation commission estimated that 69,280 people had been killed between 1980 and 2000, 75% of whom were indigenous Quechua-speaking people – but even that figure remains a matter of dispute.
