"A chilling, detailed story of one of Argentina's most shameful secrets."
It has long been known that Adolf Eichmann, Josef Mengele, Erich Priebke and many other war criminals found refuge in Argentina. In this book, a courageous Argentinian writer shows exactly how it was done, and reveals that the escape mechanisms were organized with the enthusiastic support of President Juan Peron. Even at this late date, when so much is known about the complicity of the Catholic Church and Allied intelligence agencies in the flight of the Nazis, Goni's material still has the power to shock. The paperback edition of "The Real Odessa" includes a revised introduction and conclusion, with a new afterward containing material that Uki Goni has recently researched, focusing on evidence of the Vatican complicity in providing sanctuary for war criminals.
