The Salvadoran Civil War was one of the most brutal episodes in the modern history of Central America. Lasting from 1980–1992, the conflict between the US-backed government and a coalition of left-wing rebel groups resulted in 75,000 deaths and unknown numbers of disappearances. A quarter of the country’s population fled the violence, many of whom arrived in Los Angeles, where they formed a thriving diaspora community.
My Veins Do Not End in Me at the Mistake Room brings together work from three generations of one family, providing a unique perspective on the war and the ensuing migration.
