Dr. Juan Ramogoza, who provided medical care to El Salvador's poor, was imprisoned and tortured in 1980. He later fled to the United States. Two years ago he sued two Salvadoran generals for his suffering, and won. Now his homeland is honoring him as a "Distinguished Salvadoran Humanist." Ramogoza speaks with NPR's Scott Simon.
