Searching for Life: The Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo and the Disappeared Children of Argentina

by Rita Arditti - £25.95  University of California Press (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780520215702 | ISBN 10: 0520215702

"An acute and impassioned observer, Rita Arditti describes Argentina's 'dirty war' and the heroic struggle of a group of Argentine grandmothers who set out, against all odds, to trace the whereabouts of their disappeared children and grandchildren. Admirably comprehensive, 'Searching for Life' reminds us how ordinary citizens can stand up to tyranny and prevail. Even today, the evidence collected by this tenacious group of detectives has led to the arrest of one of the military junta leaders, General Jorge Videla. The Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo are truly the unsung heroes of our time." (Eric Stover, Director - Humn Rights Centre, University of California, Berkeley).
