Photo of Mauricio Grabois, center, father of NGO Tortura Nunca Mais (Torture Never Again) Vice President Vitoria Grabois. Grabois, who lost her father, brother and husband to the 1964-1985 Brazilian military government says the current Truth Comission proposal is not enough to officially close the dark chapter in the nation's history. Brazil is the only South American nation which has not undergone a reconciliation or judicial process of the dictatorship years. Partly because of this situation, The Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled in 2010 the "Brazilian government to publicly accept responsibility for grave human rights violations committed during the military regime, open its archives to the families of victims of repression, and pay millions of dollars in reparations" (Australfoto/Douglas Engle)
