Originally painted on the wall of a residence in a Santo Domingo suburb, this mural is the only known work of art in the Dominican Republic depicting the 1937 massacre of Haitian residents of the Dominican Republic by the dictator Rafael Trujillo. This project involves the conservation and relocation of the mural to the Memorial Museum of the Dominican Resistance, dedicated to the struggles of several generations of Dominicans, including Dominicans of Haitian Descent, under the dictatorship.
