Guatemalan Maya Center
What Makes a Hero, Part 2: Maya Forever
Deeper Than That discusses the horrific history of the Guatemalan genocide against the indigenous Mayan population, often referred to as the Silent Holocaust. While learning this history, you will also hear the story of how one of our favorite volunteers, Ernesto, moved to the United States a few years ago.
"A small community of Guatemalan-Maya families began forming in the 1980s near Lake Worth, Florida. How did that community get there? What made them leave Guatemala in the first place? In this episode you will hear the treacherous history of the Maya in Guatemala, and Ernesto shares his story of migration to the United States."
