    Abstract

    On 18 July 1994, at 9:53 a.m., the headquarters of the most important Jewish community center in Argentina, the Asociacion Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA),located at 633 Pasteur Street in the historic Jewish neighborhood of Once, Buenos Aires, was the target of the deadliest bombing that has ever occurred on Argentine soil. Eighty-five people were killed and three hundred were injured. Although twenty-four years have passed since the attack, no one has been convicted and the case remains unsolved.
