Buenos Aires, Sep 22 (Prensa Latina) The Cultural Space of Our Children, in the Argentine capital, will today host the presentation of the book The Paths of Life, which tells the story of the president of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo Association, Hebe of Bonafini.
The biography was written by journalist and historian Ulises Gorini, a student of Bonafini’s struggle and the members of that group after the disappearance, torture and murder of their children by the forces of the last military dictatorship (1976-1983).
The appointment will take place at 5:30 p.m., local time, and on the 25th of this month the massive sale of the text by the October Group will begin.
The book includes a photographic compilation on Bonafini and, according to its author, required “a very demanding job of 11 years that has two facets: the life before the disappearance of their children, and the life after, which is extraordinarily abundant because the Mothers they became a very important image motif.”
Working with her was an extraordinary experience that transforms you, she added.
Bonafini, communicator Cynthia García, and journalists Fernando Borroni, Victoria Ginzberg and Karina Micheletto will participate in the presentation.
Jorge Omar Bonafini was 26 years old when he was kidnapped in February 1977, in the city of La Plata, and his brother Raúl Alfredo, 24, suffered the same fate 10 months later.
Jorge’s wife, Maria Elena Bugnone, was arrested in 1978.
Since then, his mother and those of many other young people have not stopped demanding justice and march every Thursday with their white scarves around the Pirámide de Mayo, in the square of the same name.
