The Journey of Dr. Ramogoza

NPR broadcast this interview over the weekend with Dr. Juan Ramogoza. In 1980 Dr. Ramogoza was tortured by government forces because he provided medical care to poor campesinos during the civil war. In 2002, he successfully sued two Salvadoran generals in a Miami federal court for damages arising out of his torture. Now in 2004, the Salvadoran government invites him to return to receive recognition as a "Distinguished Salvadoran Humanist."
