Description

Los aparecidos son la memoria del Holocausto. Pero la memoria no es la historia, y lo que ayuda a salvarse a un individuo no siempre es el bien ni la verdad. Cuidado. Las vidas heroicas esconden también regiones desoladas, patagonias que sólo conocen los sobrevivientes.

Un pasado común en Lodz, en la Polonia ocupada. Una nueva vida tranquila y modesta en América, lejos del horror o de los tribunales, el destino favorito que víctimas y verdugos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial eligieron para dar capricho al olvido. En este libro hay muchas verdades, y una sola mentira. También hay un periodista seco a punto de traicionar a la profesión.

La historia la conoce el mundo en 1997. Una serie de crónicas destapan la biografía de Walter Rauff, un criminal nazi refugiado en Chile. Pocos días después de haber sido publicadas, su autor recibe una carta de un polaco sobreviviente de la guerra, Abe Barrea, que vive en la patagonia chilena y dice que conoció a Rauff cincuenta años atrás, en su país natal. Periodista y sobreviviente se entrevistan y “el azar, el empeño de las casualidades”, van poco a poco revelando las vergüenzas de una guerra y de unas biografías.

Elevada a metáfora austral, Patagonia es una segunda oportunidad para la vida, la “exhalación desesperada de un deseo” para aparecidos y criminales. No importa bajo que nombre vivan o mueran éstos. Como le sucede a la Enma Zunz de Borges, verdadero es su tono, verdadero su pudor, verdadero su odio.

Los aparecidos buscan en Patagonia reencontrase con una vida que les fue negada. Sus verdugos, olvidar que nadie eligió por ellos.

Ghosts are the memory of the Holocaust. But memory is not history, and helping to save an individual is not always right or true. Care. The heroic lives also hide desolate regions, patagonia only known survivors.

A common past in Lodz in occupied Poland. A quiet and modest new life in America, away from the horror or the courts, the favorite destination that victims and executioners of the Second World War chose to give fad into oblivion. In this book there are many truths and one lie. There is also a dry period to betray the profession.

The story is known by the world in 1997. A number of chronic uncover the biography of Walter Rauff, a Nazi war criminal refuge in Chile. A few days after it was published, the author receives a letter from a Polish survivor of the war, Abe Barrea, who lives in Chilean Patagonia, said that Rauff met fifty years ago in his native country. Journalist and interviewing survivors and "the random, the commitment of chances, " are gradually revealing the nakedness of a war and some biographies.

Raised metaphor southern Patagonia is a second chance at life, the "breath of a desperate desire" to ghosts and criminals. No matter the name under which they live or die. As happens to Borges' Emma Zunz, true is its tone, the truth of their shame, true hate.

Ghosts in Patagonia meet again seek a life that was denied them. His executioners, and remember that nobody elected them.
