14 - HEARING THE CRY OF THE POOR: The Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador by Ron Hansen M.A. ’95. Their murder in November 1989 marked a turning point in the country’s civil war. What do they have to say to us now?

25 - THE OPEN WINDOW by Lucía Cerna. A first-person account by the housekeeper in the Jesuit community at the University of Central America. She witnessed the killing of six Jesuits by government soldiers, and telling the truth about that night cost her dearly.
