Detailing the clandestine campaign of Operation Condor—a secret military plan implemented in 1975 by six Latin American countries ruled by right-wing military dictatorships to eliminate their political opponents—this book stands as a tribute to the memory of the victims who lost their lives in the brutal violence. For nearly a decade, author João Pina, traveled extensively through Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay to document what is left of the Condor years and report on a plan that resulted in extrajudicial executions dozens of thousands of people.

This story means much more to me than just photography. It is about my own heritage as a young man. It is about me, even if it happened many years before I was born. It is about a very small group of people that were arrested, tortured and sentenced to many years in jail because they thought differently. Both my grandparents were part of this group. My grandmother Albertina Diogo and my grandfather Guilherme da Costa Carvalho (who died in 1973) were members of the Portuguese communist party and fought with their ideals against a fascist regime that lasted for 48 years in Portugal making it the longest dictatorial regime of western Europe in the XX century.
