Torture in Brazil: A Shocking Report on the Pervasive Use of Torture by Brazilian Military Governments, 1964-1979. (details)
During the military regime, Cardinal Archbishop Paulo Evaristo Arns collected official documents confirming the practice of torture by government forces and carried out interviews with citizens who had been victims of abuse. This material was compiled into a book that circulated clandestinely until the end of the regime. In 1985, as democracy was reinstalled, the book was published by the Archdiocese of São Paulo with the title "Brasil: Nunca Mais" (Brazil: Never Again). In 1998, in collaboration with Joan Dassin, editor, and Jaime Wright, translator, the Archdiocese published an English version of the work of Fray Evaristo Arns, titled "Torture in Brazil: A Shocking Report on the Pervasive Use of Torture by Brazilian Military Governments, 1964-1979."
