I highly recommend this book to anyone who will be traveling to Argentina. The first chapter dealing with the torture that went on was hard to get through, but after that the book was filled with interesting information about what happened to these poor people and what the families are still struggling with.

The Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo (Spanish: Asociación Civil Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo) is a human rights organization with the goal of finding the children stolen and illegally adopted during the Argentine dictatorship. The president is Estela Barnes de Carlotto. The organization was founded in 1977 to locate children kidnapped during the repression, some of them born to mothers in prison who were later "disappeared", and to return the children to their surviving biological families

Rita Arditti has conducted extensive interviews with twenty Grandmothers and twenty-five others connected with their work; her book is a testament to the courage, persistence, and strength of these "traditional" older women.

On Tuesday the Grandmothers announced that DNA had confirmed the identity of another victim – the 40-year-old son of two desaparecidos – Enrique Bustamante and Iris Nélida García Soler – bringing the number of recovered grandchildren to 122.
