Rating this book is as difficult as reading it. Its content cannot be described as enjoyable, but what kept me going was its purpose. I would not look for literary value in something that is called a “report”.

This report is the work of the National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons created by the newly elected president, Raúl Alfonsin, in December 1983. Its purpose was to investigated the “desaparecidos” and other human rights violations that happened during the previous military dictat
An important and necessary work of historical record. 30 years after the end of the junta it remains politically, socially, and culturally relevant.

"El silencio no será una respuesta ni el tiempo cerrará las heridas"

"Ingresar a ellos (los centros clandestinos) significó en todos los casos DEJAR DE SER (...)"

"Una muerte en la que el que iba a morir no tenía ninguna participación: era como morir sin luchar, como morir estando muerto o como no morir nunca"

Un texto obligado para los Argentinos. El informe sobre la desaparición forzada de personas durante la última dictadura militar permite remontarnos a un tiempo por demás oscuro en el país de la mano de testimonios y datos recopilados por la CONADEP.

Si bien el tiempo ha pasado, este es aun un libro de actualidad, ya que incluso al día de hoy quedan las cicatrices y rencores de aquella época pasada, cuando el remedio a el terrorismo montonero acabó siendo más cruel que la enfermedad. Es una herida

Nunca Mas digs deep into the political wave in Argentina that produced the "Desaparecidos" in the '80s. It's pretty sad, to be honest. While in Buenos Aires, I went to the 'now' museum that housed a lot of the missing people during that political regime. It gave me a strong negative vibe - this is pretty heavy stuff.

It's a very sad and hard piece of Argentinian history worth reading. Everybody should know what REALLY happened.

The grisly and detailed report on the brutal crimes of the military government in Argentina in the 1970's. Chilling.

A sobering report on the "disappearances" caused by the military junta. Teaches us lessons about the fragile state of "democracy"

Que luego lo sacan de allí, llevándolo a otra sala del citado edificio, donde un grupo de personas lo someten a una brutal golpiza de puñetazos y patadas.” 0 likes
