The Murders of Moisés Ville: The Rise and Fall of the Jerusalem of South America.

Award-winning journalist Javier Sinay investigates a series of murders from the nineteenth century, unearthing the complex history and legacy of Moisés Ville, the “Jerusalem of South America,” and his personal connection to a defining period of Jewish history in Argentina

“I greatly admire Javier Sinay’s enlightening and humane account of his sleuthing — the disinterment of a violent episode of buried history — now no longer forgotten. Its implications resonate far beyond the borders of Argentina.” — Paul Theroux, author
