Papeles de Ozumba (Atzompan): Fragmentos de una memoria colectiva

Paleography and study by Tomás Jalpa Flores

Fragments of people's memory, telling about their institutions, are housed in archives. They are echoes of the past, fragments of time that bring us near their daily life, the knowledge of their land, and their relationships with their neighbors. Documents are silent witnesses waiting for the moment to be questioned to provide the opportunity to understand the historical dynamics of a place. This volume tries to recover these testimonies from a region that has seen much destruction and looting of its documentary and artistic materials. Through careful paleographic work, the author brings the readers near the unpublished dossier from the town of Ozumba (Atzompan) which contains two centuries of litigations among neighborhoods. In Spanish.
