Terror in Buenos Aires : The Islamic Republic’s Forgotten Crime Against Humanity

Ms. Paola Sara Czyzewski was one of 85 victims of the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) bombing that took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina on July 18, 1994.

Seventeen years ago, 85 people lost their lives when a bomb went off in Buenos Aires at the mutual aid society AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina).  The explosion was neither an accident nor a mistake. In 2006, Argentina’s investigation determined that the order for the bombing had come from a special committee composed of the highest ranking Iranian leaders and that Iranian diplomats and agents commissioned by them helped with the logistics and the funding of the operation.

The Abdorrahman Boroumand Foundation (ABF) has documented AMIA victims’ stories in Omid, a Memorial in Defense of Human Rights, where their memory shall be preserved and honored along with that of thousands of their Iranian and non-Iranian fellow human beings who have fallen victim to gross human rights violations perpetrated by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

ABF has also released a report, Terror in Buenos Aires: The Islamic Republic’s Forgotten Crime Against Humanity,” which qualifies the AMIA bombing as a crime against humanity. This report is available in English and Farsi.



Surrounding the anniversary of the bombing, the following news pieces were written about the 1994 bombing and recent calls for discussion between Argentina and Iran.
