D uring the — military regime in Argentina, many stories circulated about shocking violence and human rights violations, causing its citizens to become paralyzed by fear. Whereas rumors are often seen as insignificant, unreliable, and untrue, during this period in Argentina no rumor was insignificant. People were murdered, imprisoned, tortured, and disappeared merely on the basis of a rumor. While from an historical perspective we can now see how rumors played such a significant and often tragic role for the Argentinean people, curiously, contemporary scholars have overlooked this critical issue.
I demonstrate how this complex dichotomy offers a new perspective on testimonio and how those rumors attest to the phenomenon of insile as an individual rather than a collective experience.
