On July 18, 1994 the AMIA building in Buenos Aires was decimated by an explosion that killed 85 people and injured over 400 more. This terrorist attack was made against Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina, the most influential Jewish philanthropic organization in Argentina. Appearances are often deceiving, and while it appeared that the Argentine government was launching a thorough investigation, the reality was that a government-sponsored smokescreen was covering up the true details of the attack.
Frustrated and stymied, survivors of the attack and families of its victims sought to reveal the truth. To that effect, they enlisted the services of internationally renowned prosecutor of Nazi war criminals Alberto Zuppi to investigate the heinous deed and its coverup. AMIA: An Ongoing Crime is the compelling story of Zuppi’s efforts – from the initial blast to the dramatic closing trial – to plough through the layers of corruption and intrigue to reveal the shocking truth of the case.
