La noche de Tlatelolco is perhaps the most reprinted Mexican book of recent times, and with good reason: in it Poniatowska brought together numerous crucial, vivid, frightened, indignant, dignified, courageous, defiant testimonies of the tragic days of October 1968.

(On October 2, 1968 in the Tlatelolco section of Mexico City, the Mexican Armed Forces opened fire on a group of unarmed civilians in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas who were protesting the upcoming 1968 Summer Olympics. The Mexican government and media claimed that the Armed Forces had been provoked by protesters shooting at them, but government documents made public since 2000 suggest that snipers had been employed by the government).

The intensity of the chronicle, the pain of the testimony and the overwhelming force of the denunciation give this book its exemplary status. Indeed, it has been a model both for its conception and production and for its resonance: it is living history, a rebellious memory, a weapon against silence. As such, La noche de Tlatelolco is the emblematic book of Mexico in recent decades.
