On July 18, 1994, Argentina suffered the deadliest single attack on a Jewish Diaspora community since the Holocaust. The Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, which housed many of Argentina’s key Jewish institutions, was attacked by a suicide bomber – killing 85 people and injuring hundreds. Immediately following the attack, AJC sent a delegation to Buenos Aires to express solidarity with the Jewish community and to meet with government officials.
AJC, a partner organization of the AMIA, has stood at the side of the Argentine Jewish community from the first moments of the tragedy in 1994, when an AJC group traveled to Buenos Aires to express solidarity with the victims and their families and to call for justice. Since then, AJC delegations have returned at least annually and met frequently with Argentine officials.
