Argentina DNA - by Martin Acosta

Humberto doesn?t remember anything. Everything he knows he was told by his grandmother or his father. He doesn?t remember the kidnapping, or what happened before. His memory only registers images of being in a pickup truck with his mom sitting next to him. He was surrounded by police. But Humberto does not know if it is true or a dream...On May 23, 1977 in Morón, two year old Humberto, his eight month old sister Noemí, his mother Elda and her partner, the father of the girl, were kidnapped. The children were given to a military tailor, a relative of Noemí. ..Humberto gets confused; he has trouble remembering exact dates. From that day forth, for him and his sister this was their new family. He stopped being named Humberto and became Alejandro Ferri...Humberto?s father, Renato, found out that he had a son while he was a political prisoner... It was only when he was freed in 1983 that he could begin to look for him...As in nearly all the cases, Humberto suddenly realized that the guy standing in front of him was his father. Noemí also regained her identity and lives with her father?s brother.....HUMBERTO COLAUTTI....San Lorenzo, Salta, November 2, 2001: Humberto Colautti with his father Renato Colautti and his dog Yuyo.....Elda María Francisetti, kidnapped May 23, 1977...Humberto Colautti, kidnapped May 23, 1977.....
