Description : Four of Marcelino's family members - his mother and 3 younger siblings - were killed in the 80s during Peru's armed conflict. More than 30 years passed before the remains were uncovered, identified and returned to the family. The four coffins were transported over the mountains on horse and donkey to the family's original village, to be given a dignified burial.
