The interview follows the recent arrest of a former Guatemalan general, Hector Mario Lopez Fuentes, who has been charged with genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity in the Ixil area of that country. Professor Sanford is completing work on a book with the working title Genocidio en la Area Ixil: El caso de Acul y testimonios de sobrevivientes (Genocide in the Ixil Area: The Case of Acul and Survivor Testimonies), which she hopes to publish prior to his trial.
