This article analyzes Eduardo Halfon's Mañana nunca lo hablamos (2011) arguing that Hal/on offers a retrospective view of Guatemala's Civil War ("la violencia") from a Jewish perspective that is distinct from an indigenous perspective. Nonetheless, this study shows to what extent Halfon's work posits the possibility of an affective identification between Jews and indigenous populations in the context of the violent political conflict The conclusion maintains that the work offers new possibilities for thinking through the relationship between ethnicity and politics, a conceptual relationship that until now has been a critical lacuna within analyses of Jewish Latin American cultural productions.
