In February, the interview team from Cayuga, New York returned to continue their memory and history project! The Cayuga community is sistered with San Pedro, in Cacaopera, Morazán, and began last year to record interviews with members of the community about their own stories, at the request of one of the community elders, Eligia. This project has not only allowed both communities to grow closer together in knowledge and care for each other, but has also strengthened the mutual accompaniment, which is the goal of the sister relationships, as well as provided a space for empowerment and emotional healing within San Pedro.
The interview below is with Ana, a member of the congregation of mothers, about her experience as a Salvadoran, a woman and a mother during the war.
