Eduardo Strauch

As seen in the movie “ALIVE”, in 1972, on October 13, the Fairchild F-227 plane carrying 40 passengers and 5 crew members, crashed in the Andes mountains. After 72 endless days, living at more than 3,500 meters height, bearing temperatures down to 30 degrees below zero and sustaining himself with human flesh, Eduardo was one of the 16 survivors who were rescued. His talk, “EXIT”, is characterized by a humanistic, mature vision and is free of heroism and trivial aspects. He highlights the crucial factor: that a natural need for organization became apparent when the survivors faced limit conditions and needed to reach an aim. Within this, a new leadership developed. He calls this phenomenon “The new society”.
