We gathered a group of volunteer jewish chefs and nutritionists and togethercreated a food recipe rich in vitamins and substances that have a direct effect onthe brain. A bread meant to improve the memory of Argentines and become the symbol of a new tradition that help us remember.The recipe was taught in commercials, print ads and billboards inviting the peopleto cook and share the bread. People could also taste the bread on theater plays.It was present on TV and radio shows, where the hosts cooked the bread andtasted it live. The campaign also reached TV soaps.On our website people could eat a "piece of online bread" answering questions andsharing their feelings. On twitter, we created the Memory Tweet. Using the hashtag#tweetdelamemoria, people could send the recipe to the future to receive it backevery year on the day of the attack.
On July 18th of 1994, an explosion changed the lives of all the Argentinean people:a bomb destroyed the headquarters of the most emblematic Jewish organization inArgentina, AMIA, taking the lives of 85 people.18 years later, the case remains unsolved. The passage of time is inexorable evento such a terrible event, thus turning into a big obstacle. We had to do somethingthat may attack our biggest enemy: oblivion.To keep memory alive, we needed to create something that could preserve andsustain the argentine's memory. We wanted to create a symbol, a new tradition tomake people remember the attack and its importance in a less aggressive way.We needed to and install the topic in society and ensure that the attack was goingto be remembered.
With $0 investment and a group of volunteers to create this simple recipe, we brought to life the symbol adopted nationwide to remember the terrorist attack. The idea was content in every news media and achieved a media exposure estimated to be worth $3,945,000.Thousands of people joined us in social networks making it Trending Topic.Bakeries, restaurants and shops adopted the bread. Even McDonald’s included it in their menu. It reached the memory of the Argentine president who reopened the investigation that has been forgotten for 18 years.We started a whole new tradition: the tradition of remembering.
