Cuando tenía 18 años, fuerzas militares irrumpieron en su casa y se llevaron a sus padres. Luego, secuestraron a su hermana de 15 años y a su cuñada. Su hermano Sergio estaba haciendo la conscripción en la ESMA y nunca más volvió. En una noche, la del 15 de julio de 1976, Daniel Tarnopolsky perdió a toda su familia y se convirtió en un sobreviviente. Se exilió primero en Chile, después en Francia y en Israel hasta que el regreso de la democracia le ofreció garantías y fuerzas para volver al país. Su búsqueda nunca cesó. Su lucha lo llevó a ganar un juicio sin precedentes en el 2004, por el cual el ex almirante Emilio Massera debió pagarle una indemnización. Nada de esto le devolvió a su familia.
Tardó en encontrar algo de paz. Buscó, como muchos, en la religión un lugar de contención y de alivio; buscó también en videntes y médiums alguna respuesta para poder recrear la historia de aquella noche en la que la violencia lo dejó solo. Necesitaba entender, reconstruir desde las ruinas. Este libro reproduce todas las búsquedas de Daniel Tarnopolsky: la búsqueda de justicia, la de su propia identidad y la de sus desaparecidos. Betina sin aparecer es la historia de una familia forzada a la ausencia y es también el relato de la reconstrucción de la vida del único sobreviviente de esta tragedia. Y es, sobre todo, un grito de esperanza para comprender dónde está Betina.
For the Palestinians who live in the narrow coastal strip of Gaza, the December 2008 Israeli invasion was a nightmare of unimaginable proportions: in the 22-day-long action 1,400 Gazans were killed, several hundred on the first day alone. More than 6,000 homes were destroyed or badly damaged. The cost of the destruction and disruption of economic life, in one of the world’s poorest areas, is estimated at more than $3 billion. And yet, while nothing should diminish recognition of Palestinian suffering through these frightful days, it is possible something redemptive will emerge from the tragedy of Gaza. For, as Norman Finkelstein details, in a concise work that melds cold anger with cool analysis, the profound injustice of the Israeli assault has been widely recognized by organizations impossible to brand as partial or extremist. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the UN investigation headed by Richard Goldstone, in documenting Israel's use of indiscriminate and intentional force against the civilian population during the invasion (100 Palestinians died for every one Israeli), have had an impact on traditional support for Israel. Jews in both the United States and the United Kingdom, for instance, are beginning to voice dissent, and this trend is especially apparent among the young. Such a shift, Finkelstein contends, can result in new pressure capable of moving the Middle East crisis towards a solution, one that embraces justice for Palestinians and Israelis alike.
The seeds of hope were thus sown in the bitter anguish of Gaza. This Time We Went Too Far, written with Finkelstein’s customary acuity and precision, will surely advance the process it so eloquently describes.
Danger runs high and passions burn hot in Montana's wild country Big-city detective Bentley Jamison is a long way from home in the Beartooth wilderness when one of local rancher Maddie Conner's ranch hands goes missing. Towering mountains and a small, tight community are as unfamiliar to Jamison as herding sheep, but he's never shied away from a challenge. As the new deputy sheriff, he's sworn to protect every inch of this rough terrain--starting with unraveling a mystery that has left Maddie a wide-open target. Maddie's as beautiful--and untamable--as the land around them. Like Jamison, she won't back down from danger. But desire that flares hotter than their tempers only raises the stakes when a fierce storm traps them in the high mountains.
Caught in a killer's sights, Jamison and Maddie must trust one another, because now survival--and love--are all that matter.
