Faces of the Disappeared : Ayotzinapa: A Chronicle of Injustice

In this gripping narrative told from multiple perspectives of the survivors and families of the victims, Maldonado relives the events leading up to and during the horrific assaults in which 43 students were brutalized at the hands of police and militarized narco-gang members, then vanished without a trace. Now, four years later-when many of the fallen would have graduated-despite ongoing investigations from international human rights organizations, the violence that took place that night remains as yet unexplained, nor has anyone been held accountable.

Reviews and Comments

  • "Faces of the Disappeared marks a significant contribution to the growing body of work available to English-language readers about one of modern Mexico's most defining tragedies. Maldonado reconstructs, in chilling detail, the chaos and horror that befell the students of Ayotzinapa on September 26th, 2014. By placing the stories of victims and survivors front and center, this book infuses tenderness, humanity, and heartbreak into our understanding of a unshakable act of injustice that has yet to be accounted for."

  • "Due to the fact that [this] is such a tragedy I hate to call it a page turner, but it is. As much as we are compelled to read the details of that horrific night, we ache just as much to read about how the missing were mostly just kids who took a wrong turn into the wrong town in Mexico. Faces of the Disappeared is more than an important book, it is a book that connects us to our own humanity."

  • "...leaves a deep piercing wound in every human sensibility...the author threads the individual stories into a tapestry of muted colors and disturbing patterns...this is a book that will realign your perspective...Kudos to translator Chandler Thompson...a heart-wrenching text."
