    1. Aventura arqueológica a través de la historia del peronismo y su vinculación con los nazis. El libro es un gran archivo de datos y más datos. Aborda la participación de Perón y su gabinete en las diferentes tareas para "recuperar" nazis. Incluye muchísima información que va desde los recortes de diarios de la época, desgrabaciones de entrevistas a genocidas nazis así como también entrevistas realizadas por el autor. En una segunda línea vemos la triangulación entre diferentes estruc [...]

    2. ODESSA THE INSIDE STORYEveryone has heard about the myth of Odessa, the secret organization with hidden contacts intended to provide sanctuary for the worst nazi criminals after the end of the Second World WarAfter six of years of deep research in Argentina and Europe, Mr. Goñi shows clearly how the actual Odessa operated smuggling nazis from the Old continent to the South American secluded country, unveiling a contact network made by pro-nazi Peron Argentine government assistants, corrupted di [...]

    3. La storia della fuga verso l'Argentina dei criminali di guerra nazisti raccontata partendo da lontano e con una cospicua documentazione.Tanti nomi, tante storie, tanti alti prelati e frati francescani (!).Appena posso farò un salto in via Albaro a Genova a vedere dove si trovava l'ufficio da cui alla fine degli anni 40 transitarono tra gli altri Mengele (che fu pure arrestato, non riconosciuto e rilasciato) ed Eichmann

    4. In Verbindung mit meinen Recherchen als Hobby-Historiker über die argentinische Zeit von Oskar Schindler stiess ich auch die Hilfsorganistion ODESSA, die zahlreichen Kriegsverbrechern die Flucht nach Argentinien ermöglicht hat. Ich fand aber keine Hinweise, dass Oskar Schindler als Judenretter dort Schwierigkeiten bereitet wurden.Dies ist ein Rezensionsband. Ich benutzte ihn als Quelle für meinen ZEIT online - Beitrag "Oskar Schindler und die ODESSA".

    5. This was referred to in Kerr's "A Quiet Flame" so I thought it would be interesting to read. It isn't a quick read, but is a well researched and fascinating study of a particularly murky episode in Argentine history - the setting up of the escape lines for various key Nazi figures after the war, and the complicity in the enterprise from a number of different sources. Worth persisting with if it's an area which interests you.

    6. A mostly chronological, straightforward, this happened then this happened account of Argentina rescuing Nazi fugitives. We all now know this happened, but this book supplies the details. More of those details should have been cited, though. I'd skip this book unless you are studying the events.

    7. Thoroughly researched and well-written, this book provides evidence of how governments, sympathizers, and even clergy joined forces to create an escape route for Nazi war criminals. A fascinating and disturbing read.

    8. The truth is even more unbelievable that the fiction of Frederick Forsyth. There will be more to come if the records from the Vatican and the Argentine ever see day light.

    9. Answers questions about how so many Nazis ended up in South America, and how the Red Cross and the Vatican supported this effort.

    10. žalostno! Res žalostno kako so se igrali s človeškimi življenji! Če bi res obstajal, tega ne bi dovolil. Ker se je to zgodilo, je dokaz, da ga ni!

    11. Great book. Crammed with detail. At times a little repetitive as the stories were similar but every chapter held surprises.

    12. Interesting subject with painfully little exposure to the post-WW2 world. However, awkwardly written and clumsily approached.
