This is the translation of Clara’s grandmother’s letter:
I’m your grandmother “Chicha” Chorobik de Mariani, I’ve been looking for you since Etchecolatz Camps and his troops killed your mother and kidnapped you from your home at 1134 de la Plata, Republica Argentina. It was November24 1976 you were only three months old. Since that moment, me and your father (who was also killed) started looking for you.
Even though people tried to convince me that you died in the shooting, I knew you were alive. It has been proven now that you’re alive and that you’re with someone. You’re 31 years old now and your document number may be very close to 25.476.305 that is the number that we registered you. I would like to ask you to look for pictures when you were a baby and compare them with the ones attached to this letter.
I want to tell you that your grandfather (father side) dedicated his life to music and I to the plastic arts. Your maternal grandparents dedicated their life to science, that your mom love literature and your father was an economist. Both had a compromise of solidarity with society. You may have some of this inclinations because even though you were raised in another house, you still have the genes. You may have many questions with out answers within yourself.
I’m more than 80 years old and my only hope is to hug you and to recognize myself in your eyes. I would like you to come to me to complete this long journey and we would be able to meet.
Clara Anahi, while I await for you, I will keep looking for you.
Hugs from your grandmother “Chicha Mariani”
