Widows by Ariel Dorfman( Book )

55 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in a Greek village in 1942, and purportedly written from his imagination by a Danish man before he was picked up by the Gestapo and not seen again, here is Ariel Dorfman s haunting and universal parable of individual courage in the face of political oppression. Widows forms a testament to the disappeared those living under totalitarian regimes the world over, who are taken away for "questioning" and never return. One by one, the bodies of men wash up on the shore of the river, where they are claimed by the women of the local town as husbands and fathers, even though the faces of the dead men are unrecognizable. A tug-of-war ensues between the local police, who insist that the women couldn t possibly recognize their loved ones, and the women demanding the right to bury their beloveds. As it evolves, the stand-off reveals itself to be a power struggle between love, dignity and honor, and the lesser god of brute force. -- Amazon.com

I couldn't even imagine that they would kill us : an oral history of the attacks against the students of Ayotzinapa by John Gibler( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On September 26, 2014, police in Iguala, Mexico attacked five busloads of students and a soccer team, killing six people and abducting forty-three students--now known as the Iguala 43--who have not been seen since. In a coordinated cover-up of the government's role in the massacre and forced disappearance, Mexican authorities tampered with evidence, tortured detainees, and thwarted international investigations. Within days of the atrocities, John Gibler traveled to the region and began reporting from the scene. Here he weaves the stories of survivors, eyewitnesses, and the parents of the disappeared into a tour de force of journalism, a heartbreaking account of events that reads with the momentum of a novel. A vital counter-narrative to state violence and impunity, the stories also offer a testament of hope from people who continue to demand accountability and justice"--
