The Sun Cannot Be Hidden by a Finger, A true story

  • Gilbert Talbot


Introduction: This is a true story. It arises from the testimonies of the genocide? survivors, among the Maya people of Guatemala, during the dirty war which lasted 36 years (1960-96). In the story, I changed the names and I didn?t identify the places clearly, because there are still intimidations and killing, as mentioned Pedro, at the beginning of the story, particularly for those who are fighting for human rights. But, in the mediagraphy, are indicated my main testimonial sources. My other sources are the survivors themselves whom I met personally and told me their own story of deaths and sufferings. Truth is sometimes hard to support, but there come times where saying the truth is much better than to support silence.
Hence, this story is first the discovery of the historical truth.
