In this essay we attempt to go into the subject of the memory of State terrorism within the field of philosophical reflection. To be exact, we want to establish political-ethical tensions between the problematic questions of the identity of appropriated children and the wounded memory, between the narrative of the historical past and the impossible mourning. Tensions that then combine themselves in the relationship between politics and tragedy. One of the sinister ways that simple life, or naked life in the terms of Giorgio Agamben, was manipulated, that is, was violently turned into an object, or as military jargon puts it: "war booty", during the last Dictatorship, consisted in the appropriation of the children of the detained and disappeared persons. Biopolitical strategy that inscribed life in a state calculation, more exactly in the reckoning of the terror and the passing of the law that dictates the exception: to annihilate, to wipe out the enemy, to exorcise the phantasm. The remnant, one among many : children born in captivity or snatched from their homes, during or after their parents illegal detention. Formation of a signed subjectivity, threatened by the seal of terror. Inextricable, it sets in. Phantom-like installations of desires, bodies, loves, faces. Phantoms made up of skin and bones. Some do not even know about this, maybe they even do not have any suspicions.
