If you are an English teacher in Guatemala, and would be open to be interviewed as part of my Hot Spot Interview series, please leave me a comment.

Having studied Spanish in Guatemala years ago in an area populated primarily by indigenous people, I was pleased to learn of today’s guilty verdict in the genocide trial of José Efraín Ríos Montt.

Here are some resources related to his actions that I’m adding to The Best Resources For Learning About Genocide:

Rios Montt Guilty of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity is from The PBS News Hour.

Guatemala: Why We Cannot Turn Away is also from The News Hour.

“Granito: How to Nail a Dictator”: New Film Tracks Struggle for Justice After Guatemalan Genocide is from Democracy Now.

Here’s the trailer from that movie, and you can learn more here:

Watch Granito: How to Nail a Dictator – Trailer on PBS. See more from POV.
