Alicia Partnoy

A student activist in the late 1970s during Argentina’s Dirty War, Alicia Partnoy was one of the tens of thousands of left-wing citizens abducted by the country’s militant government and euphemistically known as “the disappeared.” For three and a half months she was blindfolded, starved, and brutally interrogated at the Little School, then taken to another facility; she was imprisoned for over two years without charges. A poet, Partnoy lives in Los Angeles and teaches at Loyola Marymount University.
