Asesinaron Camila

In the August 18, 1848 near Buenos Aires, Camila O'Gorman, a woman of Irish descent, was executed by firing squad along with her lover, the priest Uladislao Gutierrez. The first woman executed in Argentina, she was only 21 years old and eight months pregnant. The challenge of Camila to the values of society in nineteenth-century Argentina, was considered by General Rosas, governor of the country, reason enough to put her case outside of civil law. The Irish Catholic Church in Argentina stood with Rosas. The murder of Camila represents the brutal oppression of women throughout the world, tragically still relevant today. In Spanish. For children 12 years or older. (e-book)
