Interesting story - even more so now with the crisis going on at the border. An important insight into why parents are willing to send their children unaccompanied on such a harrowing journey.

[I read this book at the same time I read Caminar, and the review deals with both. Apologies if that's confusing.]

Both Finding Oscar and Caminar focus on the decades-long genocide in Guatemala, purportedly anti-Communist and strongly supported by the U.S. government. Both are set in the early 1980s. Both are novella-length. Each centers around a boy who survives the massacre of his village.

Finding Oscar is non-fiction, an extension of what originated as a journalistic investigation of a massacre

Amazing story of horrific crimes brought to justice and a father and son reunited not even knowing they were related. I am so relieved that the truth is being talked about and investigated in Guatemala.
