The house where writer and journalist Rodolfo Walsh lived for five years during the dictatorship (1976 – 1983) was declared the cultural heritage of Argentina.
El Edon is a house located on the Caracas River in the Tigre Delta in Buenos Aires, where the famous man lived between 1971 and 1976.
At that point, the founder of the Brenza Latin Agency and his wife, Lilia Ferreira, disappeared during the last civil-military regime, so during the week of remembrance of those who disappeared in that dictatorship, the Permanent Advisory Council had the initiative to name the property traditionally local.
In addition, it has been 44 years since Walsh was abducted and assassinated by a military dictatorship, so Argentine Minister of Culture Tristan Bauer and the mayor of the municipality of Tigre, Julio Zamora, signed an agreement to improve the author’s home titles. As Operation Massacre.
It should be remembered that Walsh spent his last months at a house in San Vicente, on September 19, 1976, during an army raid on the Karapache River. But its current owners, Daniel Arguello and Mabel Gomez, discovered the house.
Since then the owners have preserved the structure and the various items in it, among which stands a memorial plaque erected on the 72nd anniversary of Walsh’s birth.
