review Imagining Argentina

Imagining ArgentinaChambers When Carlos Ruweda's wife is suddenly taken from him he discovers a magical gift In waking dreams he had clear visions of the fates of the disappeared But he. I found this book on a sidewalk in DC before I moved to Brooklyn and being from Argentina decided to pick it up I figured I'd give it a read at some pointI finally grabbed it one morning on my way to work and I am so glad I did I FELT this book A lot The whole time I thought of my family and what those poor people went through I imagined my own cousins and aunts and uncles and felt so sick to my stomach But these things need to be remembered It even prompted to me to ask my Nonna about it I found out her step brother was one of the disappeared and when I go home this weekend we plan on talking about it over some mate Something I love about this book is that the author managed to create ties between this and the Holocaust I know they are completely separate situations but the suffering and torture endured is not dissimilar and as someone who is both Jewish and Argentine seeing all parts of my ancestry intertwined was very moving It was hard not to think of all of my family members while reading this I've always been incredibly proud of my heritage and while this period of time for Argentina does not make me beam with pride the strength that its citizens my family showed and continue to show does
