Mauricio Rosencof //

We are happy to announce that the Uruguayan Chamber of Books has awarded the prestigious Gold Book 2023 to  Mauricio Rosencof‘s biographical essay, ‘With the Root on the Shoulder,’ in the category of Recent Memory. This recognition comes as the book also commemorates 50 years since the Coup d’État. Rosencof’s work represents a particular and committed perspective on the process that gave rise to the revolutionary movement in Uruguay during the 1960s. It stands as a testament to those years, embracing the importance of remembering instead of seeking to forget.

Mauricio Rosencof was a witness and a protagonist, he helped to change the destiny of his country. He is a man who fought tirelessly for freedom and democracy.
