UKI GOÑI - About

A personal commitment to human rights and unearthing long-hidden secrets has inspired my work from the start.

My book The Real Odessa on the escape of Nazi war criminals from Europe has been the object of countless interviews and documentaries by international media such as Discovery Channel, History Channel, the BBC and other television stations in the US and Europe.

Apart from my work as a researcher of recent history, I write for various media, including The New York Times and The Guardian.

I was born in Washington DC, and was raised in the US, Argentina, México and Ireland. I dropped out of Trinity College, Dublin, at the age of 21. I live in Buenos Aires.

Currently writing a series of essays for a new book on lies and denial, tentatively titled "The End of Truth."

‘Political Hatred in Argentina’
An interview with Uki Goñi by Jessica Sequeira

"I grew up pledging allegiance to the flag of the United States, then I got to be the Celtic poet walking in the rain in Dublin, and now I get to be this guy in Birkenstocks sitting in the sun in Buenos Aires "

‘Prominent Argentine Writer’
by Stephen Metcalf

Goñi considered, then said, "Interesting, isn't it, how some things completely transcend our idea of 'good' and 'bad'?"
