6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center

25 Years Since the AMIA Bombing

There will be a webcast of this event

It has been 25 years since the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. Eighty-five people were killed and hundreds wounded. Despite evidence of Iran and Hezbollah's roles in the attack, to date, no one has been held accountable.

The Latin American Program's Argentina Project, in partnership with The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), will be hosting a public seminar discussing the anniversary of the bombing and implications for counterterrorism challenges globally.

Please join us on Friday, July 12 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Registration and lunch will begin at 12:00 p.m. on the Sixth Floor of the Wilson Center.
