It was published by the "Filial Rosenberg" (Rosenberg Section) of the "Liga Argentina por los Derechos del Hombre" (Argentina League for the Rights of Man), in 1983, the year the Dictatorship's Dirty War in Argentina was officially declared over. The Argentina League for the Rights of Man was founded in the 1930's as a left-wing composite of lawyers and activists opposed to political repression and dictatorship, and, though an illegal organization for decades, was instrumental in bringing about commissions of truth and testimony on the disappearances of the dictatorship era. This pamphlet contains a beautiful illustration of the Rosenbergs embraced on the front cover, and a series of historical vignettes about the life, arrest, repression, trial, execution, and the demonstrations of international solidarity with the accused from around the world. This pamphlet was written as both a memoriam for the Rosenbergs, and as a document setting out a history of a previous instance of a state terror in the guise of democracy executing political enemies, so as to better demonstrate the necessity for testimony and commissions in the present (that of testimony of the families of the Disappeared).

  85. • Wiznitzer, Arnold. JEWS IN COLONIAL BRAZIL. Columbia University Press, New York 1960. Cloth, 8vo. 225 pages. Frontispiece portrait of Isaac Aboab da Fonseca. Controversial work in which Arnold Wiznitzer wrote that Jews "dominated the slave trade" in Brazil in the mid-17th century. Wiznitzer's statement was subsequently quoted in antisemitic literature, but sometimes taken out of context so it seemed to apply to the entire Atlantic slave trade. Many of the ethnic Jews in the New World, particularly in Brazil, were New Christians or Conversos, some of which continued to practice Judaism, so the distinction between Jewish and non-Jewish slave owners is a difficult distinction for scholars to make. Drawing heavily upon original documents in many early repositories, Dr. Wiznitzer reveals in this book a long neglected aspect of Latin-American history.

In his youth Alpersohn was a maskil, writing Hebrew articles in the Jewish press. In 1891 he emigrated to Argentina and settled in Colonia Mauricio, the first agricultural colony founded by the Jewish Colonization Association (ICA) . From the very outset he wrote pamphlets in Yiddish under a pseudonym criticizing the ICA administration. After 43 years in Mauricio, he began to spend winters in Buenos Aires but remained on his farm during the summer. Alpersohn was a prolific writer. In his three volumes of memoirs ("The ICA and Its 30 Years of Colonization in Argentina") , novels, plays, stories, and newspaper articles, he described with much color the life of the Jewish farmers in the ICA colonies. He is considered one of the outstanding Yiddish writers of Argentina" (Zadoff, EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 7 copies worldwide. Many black and white photos throughout. Includes contents page.

Buenos Aires, 1951. Paper Wrappers, 8vo, 194, vi pages. Includes photos & ads. The Daily Forward noted in 1953: "There are currently two active Yiddish theaters in Buenos Aires, the Excelsior and the Soleil, both located on La Calle Corrientes, the Second Avenue of South America. Yiddish theater here is in the same situation as in New York: Producers have all but disappeared, and the business has fallen on the shoulders of the actors. But one difference is that in Buenos Aires they depend on big names from abroad, like Pesach'ke Burstein and Lillian Lux, to bring in the audience. Also, their season only lasts about six months. Interestingly, the Yiddish theater in Buenos Aires doesn't use a box office to sell tickets. Instead, the actors and their friends go from house to house in the Jewish neighborhoods selling tickets. This tradition hearkens back to the early days of Yiddish theater in Argentina, when the actors needed to be sure of getting an audience." Good Condition. $55.00
