Como periodista independiente, me interesa el impacto de la política global sobre los individuos. ¿Por qué 400 argentin@s siguen viviendo con los asesinos de sus padres (o aquellos cómplices)? ¿Cómo unas empresas mueven a pueblos a vender sus tierras y su futuro? ¿Y que hacen los jóvenes si la guerra alcanza su calle?

Le ofrezco mi colaboración como reportera, fotógrafa o editora. Llevo 15 años trabajando como periodista, manejo cuatro idiomas y he trabajado en países de (pos)conflicto.

La mayoría de mis artículos actuales se encuentran en mis páginas alemán y inglés.

Tres décadas después del fin de la dictadura militar en Argentina, su legado cruel continúa a perseguir los sobreviventes. Los militares han secuestrado, torturado y matado más de 30.000 personas sospechosas de oponerse a su régimen y adoptaron a sus hijos pequeños. Así, más de 400 jóvenes de mi generación siguen conviviendo con los asesinos de sus padres reales (o aquellos complices). En Buenos Aires conocimos a una mujer que recientemente recuperó su identidad.

The Caravan of Change

published by Peace Boat (>> and >>, Youtube >>), in Spanish >> and in the German magazine “Südlink” 2/2013 >>

What to do if your own city has just gone through a civil war and will not wake up? If everybody locks themselves into their homes and their neighbours out? In the desert town of Villa El Salvador, a 16-year-old went out into the empty streets with a clown nose. Many followed her – until today.

The Namibian township of Mondesa is a home for people of twelve different ethnicities who lived in peaceful coexistence, even when the colonizers tried to stir jealousy between them.

Doce etnias diferentes viven juntos en el barrio de Mondesa. Cultivaron paz y amistad incluso cuando los colonizadores intentaron agitar celos entre ellos. Antes de la independencia de Namibia en 1990, los blancos casi nunca llegaron al barrio pero visitas culturales organizadas a nivel local están a punto de cambiar eso.
