Forensic anthropologist Mynor Silvestre scales the wall of a mass grave after a day of exhumations in one of Guatemala City's largest cemeteries, La Verbena. The anthropologists expect to create a database that will eventually help match genetic samples of relatives of the more than 40,000 persons disappeared during the civil war.
