The disappeared( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Disappeared tells the compelling story of dissidents killed and then secretly buried by the IRA during the conflict in Northern Ireland. Uncovering hard evidence that Gerry Adams, currently head of the IRA, was involved in one of these killings, this documentary chronicles the ongoing trauma of the victims' families and demands justice on their behalf, no matter how high up the political ladder they have to climb to retrieve it."She was in the bathroom getting washed, and the next thing, they were shouting, "Where is she? Where is she?", recalls Michael McConville, about the moment IRA operatives brandishing balaclavas burst into his West Ireland home to kidnap his mother. "About five days later, an IRA man knocks at the door, and hands me mama's purse and wedding rings. I knew she wasn't going to come back."Jean McConville, a widow and mother of 10, was dragged from the arms of her children in 1972. She became known as one the 'Disappeared' - a group of at least 15 who, considered inconvenient to the Republican movement, were abducted, shot, and disposed of in shallow graves throughout Ireland. The IRA never acknowledged these disappearances, leaving families in anguish, denying them of both closure and justice. Jean's body was recovered in 2003, more than 30 years later. Others of 'the Disappeared' have never been found. Theirs is a story the IRA never wanted exposed. This daring group of filmmakers set out to shine a light on this decades-old IRA practice of disappearances and denials, and to demand justice for the victims, even if those responsible are people of current political esteem and authority. This powerful documentary questions how to hold perpetrators of war crimes accountable, years later, in a time of peace, while telling the previously silenced story of these victimized and traumatized families

Ireland : one island, no borders by Elizabeth A Billups( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ireland is a place of mystical, enduring appeal, especially for the many millions of Americans who claim its special heritage, more than one in six according to the last U.S. Census. But Ireland has also become an international place of pilgrimage and of discovery for all who venture there.This unique collaboration between Elizabeth Billups, a Santa-Fe-based photographer and activist, and Gerry Adams, the renowned leader of Sinn Fein, reveals a side of Ireland--and of Gerry Adams--not often portrayed in the guidebooks or magazines or news media. In this special book, the two kindred spirits wander the country together and share a deep love of the land and its people, with Ms. Billups taking gorgeous photographs and Mr. Adams writing unforgettable words.While Mr. Adams has written many acclaimed books concerning his political vision for Ireland, until now he has refrained from sharing his affection for his native land. And so, with Ms. Billups, we are able travel to his and her favorite places, the places that, to them, bespeak of Ireland as one island without borders. Looking at Ms. Billups's beautiful photographs and reading Mr. Adams's family stories and personal anecdotes along with relevant historical details, legends, and myths, we come to understand why Ireland is such a special place and why he fought so long and hard to achieve peace for the many generations to come
