About three hundred Uruguayans were victims of forced disappearances during the dictatorship that ruled the country between 1973 and 1985. Uruguayans were also disappeared in Argentina, within Operation Condor. The majority of them were taken to the secret detention center Garage Olimpo. Several of them were flown into Uruguay, their fate is unknown. Human rights organizations and the families of victims continue looking for them and fighting to end impunity in Uruguay. The repression in Uruguay also reached about 15,000 political prisoners.
