Bordadoras de Memoria Logo

The Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen presents the testimony of women who lived in exile in the refugee camps of Honduras during the Salvadoran Civil War. This exhibition tells their stories.

The intimate experience of embroidering allowed them to symbolically mend those parts of their lives that were broken or torn by violence during the armed conflict.

These fabrics with threads of memory, contain the certainty that a decent life is possible when we work together toward shared dreams.
