It has long been known that Adolf Eichmann, Josef Mengele, Erich Priebke, and many other war criminals found refuge in Argentina. Now, for the first time, a courageous Argentine journalist shows exactly how it was done. This riveting book is the first to map the precise details of the smuggling of Nazis into Argentina, an operation organized with the enthusiastic support of Peron’s presidential palace. Using previously unseen archival sources, The Real Odessa covers a wide geography — Scandinavia, Switzerland, Italy — and proves the complicity of the Vatican and the Argentine Catholic Church in one of the great postwar scandals. This is a factual, historical version of the events fictionalized in Frederick Forsyth’s best-selling novel The Odessa File.

Uki Goni was born in 1953 and was educated in the USA, Argentina, Mexico, and Ireland. A regular contributor to American, Argentine, and British newspapers, he has also published two books in Spanish: one on Argentina's 1976-1983 dictatorship and the second, the precursor to The Real Odessa, on Peron's relationship with Nazi Germany. Since 1975, he has lived in Buenos Aires.Review:
