Book presentation “Don’t be fooled!”
A tribute to the generation of fathers and mothers born in the 1930s who, without seeking a place in history, political or any other kind of protagonism, never resigned, risked their lives, went to prison, went into exile, and were persecuted so that we can live today in a better country.
