Paraguay (Stroessner)

Alfredo Stroessner assumes dictatorial control over Paraguay. An admirer of Nazism, he offers refuge to many Nazi war criminals, such as Joseph Mengele.

Stroessner rules the country using murder and torture for 35 years. Genocide is committed against the indigenous population.

The Ache people occupy the country's forests, mines, and grazing lands. These are coveted by European and USA companies. The Ache are hunted down, parents are killed; children are sold into slavery. Survivors are herded into reservations headed by American fundamentalist missionaries, some of whom had participated in the hunts.
