Forty-six years ago, the young diplomats were kidnapped by a regime task force, a few steps from the Cuban embassy, ​​and later murdered in the Automotores Orletti clandestine detention and torture center, one of several that functioned as extermination sites.

Almost four decades later, in June 2012, Galañena’s remains were found in a 200-liter metal tank filled with cement, in an abandoned property in the Buenos Aires town of Virreyes.

A year later those of his partner were found.

During a tour of the ESMA Memory Site Museum (former Higher School of Mechanics of the Navy), the representatives of the Caribbean nation remembered Cejas and Galañena, as well as the more than 30,000 Argentineans disappeared during the darkest period in this country’s history.

The island’s ambassador Pedro Pablo Prada assured that Cuba endorses the struggle of Argentines to defend memory, truth and justice.

For her part, the executive director of that institution, Mayki Gorosito, highlighted the ties of friendship between both nations and urged to continue actions to preserve history and continue denouncing the atrocious crimes committed there.
