A compelling tale of a young woman's disappearance in 1970s Argentina, The Memory Stones is a sweeping, epic story of a family tragedy whose consequences echo throughout generations.
Buenos Aires, 1976. Osvaldo Ferrero and his wife Yolanda escape the city's heat with their daughters, sensible Julieta and wilful Graciela, who is nineteen and madly in love. They will be the last days the family ever spends together.
On their return to Buenos Aires, the Argentine military stages a coup. Friends vanish overnight, and Osvaldo, too, is forced to flee. When Graciela herself is abducted, Osvaldo can only witness the disintegration of his family from afar, while Yolanda fights on the ground for some trace of their beloved daughter.
Soon, she realises they may be fighting for an unknown grandchild as well. The Memory Stones tells the story of the Disappeared, thousands of Argentinians who fell victim to the violence of the period.
Depicting the despair and hope of one family as it seeks to rebuild after unimaginable loss, it is a devastating portrait of a country that has come face to face with terror, and the long dark shadow it leaves behind.

Gyuri, a fourteen-year-old Hungarian Jew, gets the day off school to witness his father signing over the family timber business - his final act before being sent to a labour camp. Two months later, Gyuri finds himself assigned to a 'permanent workplace'. This is the start of his journey to Auschwitz.
On his arrival Gyuri finds that he is unable to identify with other Jews, and is rejected by them. An outsider among his own people, his estrangement makes him a preternaturally acute observer, dogmatically insisting on making sense of the barbarity - and beauty - he witnesses.
