About the UCA martyrs
On Nov. 16, 1989, six Jesuit priests at the Universidad Centroamericana (UCA) were assassinated along with their housekeeper and her daughter by the Atlacatl commando unit of the Salvadoran military.
This November marks the 30th anniversary of the killings, which has become a tragic symbol of the civil war that dominated El Salvador in the 1980s. An estimated 75,000 Salvadorans were killed in the decade-long war.
