Armero, thirty years later…

© Viviana Peretti
In Colombia some cemeteries are an ode to the amnesia, indolence and political ineptitude of the country. An example is the cemetery of Armero, the town in the Tolima region that on November 13 of 1985 was submerged by a river of lava and mud when the Nevado de Ruiz volcano erupted. There were 25,000 victims and paradoxically the only thing that survived was the hilltop cemetery. Today the cemetery is abandoned, most of its tombs were looted a long time ago and not a single tombstone is left intact; human remains are scattered everywhere. In his visit in 1986, Pope John Paul II declared the town Holy Ground and today only cows graze on this vast ‘holy’ expanse where Armero once stood. View the rest of this entry »
