The Future of Memory: Children of the Dictatorship in Argentina Speak

by Andres Jaroslavsky - £17.95  Latin America Bureau (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781899365555 | ISBN 10: 1899365559

Children experience the world in vivid and indelible ways. For those who had to suffer the reality of the last Argentinian dictatorship (1976 - 1983) the memories of that time remain powerfully present. 'The Future of Memory' is made up of almost thirty testimonies, which between them provide a unique entry point into understanding those years and their legacy. Interviews with young Argentinians from all over the country are the centre of the book. These include children of parents disappeared or murdered during the last dictatorship, children of families who had to flee the country due to persecution, as well as children whose parents were imprisoned and those children stolen by repressors. Woven through these are documentary sources and judicial procedures relating to their testimony, including historical notes to the political context of the dictatorship. By bringing together the past, the present and the time which has elapsed in between, Jaroslavsky conveys the ways in which memories shape our existence and understanding.
