Introduction Timeline The People The Trials The Debate Your View


These pages describe some of those associated with the trials who were in El Salvador during the civil war. The first four names are those of the four churchwomen -- three nuns and one lay missionary -- who were murdered on December 2, 1980. Following are the names of the Salvadoran generals -- each of whom now lives in Florida -- who are named in the Ford and Romagoza suits. Robert White and Edwin Corr each served as U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador. Though they held the same position, their views differ as to what was the appropriate U.S. policy. Completing the list is Paul Schindler, a Roman-Catholic priest who spent 10 years in El Salvador.
