Mar 24, Joni rated it it was amazing. Rating this book is as difficult as reading it. Its content cannot be described as enjoyable, but what kept me going was its purpose.
All these centres were identified with the help of people that were illegally detained there. Some of them were demolished and some of them were still being used for different purposes. The report explains the way victims were arrested in their homes or in public places. Most of the times the number of the people carrying on such an operative vastly exceeded the number of people being placed under detention.
Nobody was safe from the repressive forces. These forced disappearances affected all layers of society. The report is backed by fragments of the testimonies of the witnesses. By reading them, we can all become more empathic and learn that we should respect other groups of people and their opinions.
All I could think while reading was how painful it must have been both for the people working for CONADEP to listen to all the testimonies and for the victims that had to remember this painful part of their past.
Although the commission had limited time and resources, they managed to create a comprehensive report and put together files to be used in bringing the culprits to justice. The work of the commission was supported by several international organizations, by the Argentine people and by local organizations such as Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo.
An important and necessary work of historical record. Un texto obligado para los Argentinos. Es una herida Un texto obligado para los Argentinos. Con mi propia miseria. No es una pesadilla.

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. Apr 03, Mary rated it really liked it.
