Mendoza - a conservative provincial town in Argentina at the foot of the Andes. April 8, 1977 - the last day that Gisela Tenenbaum was seen alive. How does a family come to terms with the fact that their twenty-two-year-old daughter disappeared so many years ago? Was she kidnapped, tortured, murdered? How have her friends and companions fared? Gisi is gone and yet still present.

Argentina's Angel tells the story of her family - Austrians of Jewish origin who fled to Argentina in 1939 -, of her committed struggle against injustice, and of her desperate, underground work for a cause that would ultimately be lost.

Born in Steyr, Austria, in 1954, Erich Hackl is a prolific writer whose nonfiction novels elucidate issues of social injustice. He resides in Vienna and Madrid.

Edward Larkin is a professor of German and the Humanities at the University of New Hampshire.

Thomas Ahrens is a teacher, translator, and artist who works in international education at BereaCollege, Kentucky.
