Jose Maria Rosa

Jose Maria Rosa was an Argentine historian, one of the most notorious of the Argentine nationalist revisionist historians.

Informally known as Pepe Rosa, he became a lawyer at just 20 years of age. After several years working as a lawyer, he began teaching both in universities and high schools. The military regime arrested him along with John W. Cooke to whom he had given refuge in his house, he spent 35 days incommunicado. He lived in Uruguay and Franco's Spain. Later Juan Domingo Peron named him ambassador to Paraguay. He moved to Greece upon Peron's death.

When Rosa returned during the military dictatorship of the late 1970s, his books were banned and taken out of public libraries. He founded a magazine called Linea ("the voice of those who do not have a voice"), which was censored many times. The magazine reflected the views of the nationalist, "national-Catholic" right. Daniel Muchnik, in his book Negocios son negocios ("Business is business"), exposed Jose Maria Rosa as a self-proclaimed anti-Semite.
