Digitization of newspapers

In collaboration with the Centro Nacional de Memoria Histórica

In 2017, we worked with the Centro Nacional de Memoria Histórica of the Colombian government to digitize more than 220,000 newspaper pages from El Pilón, Voz, and El Campesino, as part of the effort to documnt the violations of human rights during the armed conflict.

Many of these images can be consulted in their Archivo Virtual de los Derechos Humanos y Memoria Histórica.

We are always looking for new archives and libraries to work with to safeguard the documentary patrimony they look after in Colombia and elsewhere. If your institution is interested in working with us, contact us.
