When the closing of the Lecumberri prison was decreed in 1976, the so-called Black Palace was already synonymous to corruption, violence, and crime. Together with thousands of common criminals, students and teachers had occupied its cells, not to mention some of Mexico's most outstanding painters, writers, and politicians. Finally, rescued from destruction by a group of notable humanists, the transformation of Lecumberri into the General Archives of the Nation opened a formidable new chapter in the cultural history of our country. Today, thirty years after its relocation to San Lázaro, the archives that guard the memory of Mexico must face new and pressing challenges.
