This book is a tribute to the memory of the victims of Operation Condor, a secret military plan implemented in 1975 by six Latin American countries ruled by right-wing military dictatorships to eliminate their political opponents. This plan resulted in “extrajudicial executions” of at least 60,000 people. For almost a decade, author João Pina has traveled extensively trough Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay to document what is left of the Condor years.
João Pina is the author of Por teu livre pensamento, in which 25 Portuguese former political prisoners recount their personal stories.

Editorial Reviews

“It is the forgotten quality of this disturbing episode of contemporary history that João Pina’s magnificent and haunting book of images seeks to evoke. In the pictures of relatives, of execution spots and torture chambers, or in the places where vanished people were last seen—and in the emotional faces of their mothers, fathers, children, and lovers, Pina provides a heartfelt epitaph for people whose lives were expunged secretly, their bodies disappeared, and at times, the fact of their very existences left in doubt.”  —Jon Lee Anderson, staff writer, the New Yorker
