New TED Video: TED: Fredy Peccerelli: A forensic anthropologist who brings closure for the “disappeared” – Fredy Peccerelli (2014)

In Guatemala’s 36-year conflict, 200,000 civilians were killed — and more than 40,000 were never identified. Pioneering forensic anthropologist Fredy Peccerelli and his team use DNA, archeology and storytelling to help families find the bodies of their loved ones. It’s a sobering task, but it can bring peace of mind — and sometimes, justice.
