Abstract

On July 17 1976, at Guaymallén, in the Argentinian province of Mendoza, security forces killed Francisco (Paco) Urondo and kidnapped his partner Alicia Cora Raboy – still desaparecida – and their 11 months old daughter Ángela. After a few days in the major clandestine detention center of Mendoza Ángela was returned to her family. She was legally adopted by cousins of her mother, who have hidden the true story of her parents until she was 18. Ángela Urondo Raboy began to represent the reconstruction of her identity in many ways and in 2012 she published "¿Quién te creés que sos?". In this contribution I analyse the different representations of the capture of her family from the documents she quotes at the beginning of the novel reaching up to her own memories emerging thanks to her tough memory work. Ángela’s testimony not only accuses the military, but also those Montoneros leaders who exposed Urondo and his family by demoting and transferring them to the dangerous Mendoza. The aim is to trace the evidential expressions Urondo Raboy employs in order to account for the different voices interwoven in her own testimonial voice about the “capture foretold”.

El 17 de junio de 1976, en la localidad de Guaymallén de la provincia argentina de Mendoza, durante un operativo fue asesinado Francisco (Paco) Urondo, secuestradas su compañera Alicia Cora Raboy – desaparecida desde entonces – y Ángela, la hija de ambos de 11 meses. Tras una permanencia de algunos días en el D2 (el mayor centro de detención clandestino de Mendoza) la beba fue devuelta a su familia. Una prima de su madre y su esposo la adoptaron legalmente y le ocultaron la verdadera historia de sus padres hasta los 18 años. Ángela Urondo Raboy fue representando el trabajo de reconstrucción de su identidad a través de distintos canales hasta que en 2012 publicó "¿Quién te creés que sos?". En este trabajo se analizan las distintas representaciones de la “caída” de su grupo familiar, desde los “documentos (palabras inapelables)” que Urondo Raboy cita en la primera parte del libro hasta sus propios recuerdos que van emergiendo gracias a un arduo trabajo de la memoria. Con su testimonio Ángela no solo acusa a los militares, sino también a los dirigentes de la Organización Montoneros que expusieron a Urondo y su familia, trasladándolos a Mendoza a sabiendas de los riesgos que allí correrían. El objetivo ha sido rastrear los recursos evidenciales empleados por Urondo Raboy para dar cuenta de las distintas voces que concurren a tejer su propia voz testimonial sobre la “caída anunciada”.
