In today’s episode we interview the author of “Amia: An Ongoing Crime (extended edition),” Alberto Zuppi.
“AMIA” is recounts the terrorist attack in 1994 that was made against Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina, or AMIA, the most influential Jewish philanthropic organization in Argentina. Appearances are often deceiving, and while it appeared that the Argentine government was launching a thorough investigation, the reality was that a government-sponsored smokescreen was covering up the true details of the attack.
Frustrated and stymied, survivors of the attack and families of the victims sought to reveal the truth. To that effect, they enlisted the services of internationally renowned prosecutor of Nazi war criminals Alberto Zuppi to investigate the heinous deed and its coverup. AMIA: An Ongoing Crime is the compelling story of Zuppi’s efforts – from the initial blast to the dramatic closing trial – to plough through the layers of corruption and intrigue to reveal the shocking truth of the case: AMIA had been collateral damage in the middle of Israeli-Syrian peace talks that brought Argentina to a dramatic cover up. This new extended edition explains the reasons for this conspiracy.
