Timerman's book gives a unique take on this complicated country. Though he began life as an immigrant, Timerman rose to a place among Argentina's intelligentsia. As a detainee, he acknowledges a certain level of special treatment (few others had the celebrity of Timerman, which even led members of the junta and foreign governments to intervene on his behalf).

Timerman was a living reminder that real prophets are irritants and not messengers of reassurance

Timerman was a living reminder that real prophets are irritants and not messengers of reassurance. He told it like it is, whether in Argentina, Israel, Europe, or the United States. Jacobo Timerman (1923–1999) was born in the Ukraine, moved with his family to Argentina in 1928, and was deported to Israel in 1980. He returned to Argentina in 1984.

A Jewish journalist was adducted by the regime police, tortured, taken prisoner and accused of treason against the state. I did not know about this story. And, as far as I know, that's one of the rare films made by the Americans about Argentina's dictators.

Eye opening and I’m not sure everyone’s experience of survival mirrors his. I think it is one perspective and obviously valid and valuable. Not all prisoners survive by denying memories but also by remembering love as a beacon to which to return

I won't give a synopsis of the book b/c everyone else has already done that for you. What I can say about this book is that it is an impetus. After you read it, you'll most likely be hungry for more information about this brutal time in a seemingly well-developed country. Questions to consider: Why the silence of the press, with the exception of Timerman's newspaper 'La Opinion' and the 'B.A. Herald?' How could someone treated so horribly come out of it okay? Why did this happen after Pinochet's regime and the Nazi regime? This is post WWII, so why? Where was the rest of the world? The book is splendid, the first chapter gut-wrenching and beautiful. You will love it as much as Elie Wiesel's 'Night.'

I read this in college and returned to it ten years later. I found his descriptions of the totalitarianism essential for anyone interested in history and politics. I would suggest that anyone taking on the task of reading this book look into the history of Peronism. It would help to get a full perspective on it before delving into the book.

Well written document about repression in Latin America during the 1970's, written from the reporter Jacobo Timerman's point of view. Sheds light on various themes, such as torture, anti-semetism, and the irrational detainment and destruction of people who were guilty of not having the same views as the ruling Junta government. Great text for modern Latin American history.

Timerman, whose career is referenced in Lawrence Thornton's IMAGINING ARGENTINA, lived the life -- and, under such a regime as that of the Argentine generals -- and suffered the punishment of an honest journalist.

Opened my eyes to what can occur in any of these despotic nations, the USA as well, if we allow unlimited power with zero checks and balances to the top dicators.
