about

Detailing the clandestine campaign 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 book stands as a tribute to the memory of the victims who lost their lives in the brutal violence. For nearly a decade, author João Pina, traveled extensively through Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay to document what is left of the Condor years and report on a plan that resulted in extrajudicial executions of at least 60,000 people.
João Pina is a writer and a professional photographer. His first book, written in his native Portuguese, won several awards.

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
