GIANCARLO CERAUDO: DESTINO FINAL -- ARGENTINA'S DEATH FLIGHTS DURING THE DIRTY WAR. Schilt Publishing, Amsterdam, 2016. 252 pp. with 150 col. ills. ISBN 9789053308646 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: Destino Final is the Spanish term for "final destination", the final arrival place of any plane trip. For at least 5,000 people in opposition to the Argentine military dictatorship, this term gained an atrocious meaning: drugged and loaded on military planes, infamously known as "death flights", they were thrown, still alive, in the final part of the Rio de la Plata, just before it reaches the Atlantic Ocean, their final, definitive destination. From 1976 until 1983, a military dictatorship governed Argentina. During the dictatorship, the military waged a war against "subversion," known in the international press as the so-called Guerra Sucia, the Dirty War, and attempted to purge the country of all individuals they considered to be "subversives." An estimated 30,000 people died at the hands of the military, which executed a systematic plan to exterminate subversives in concentration camps. Some of these centres were located on military premises. Others, right in the middle of the city, at regular houses, in front of everybody's eyes. Today, many of the buildings are in the same conditions they where at that time. 4,000 detainees, imprisoned in these centers were killed. Just a few of their bodies were recovered. Their families are still looking for their remains and are seeking punishment for the guilty.
