Kraiselburd was a renowned journalist from the city of La Plata (capital of the province of Buenos Aires) who was owner and Editor-In-Chief newspaper El Día. Kraiselburd was kidnapped and murdered by Peronist armed groups (Montoneros) weeks after launching Diario Popular. His son, Raúl, became then responsible for managing El Día and Diario Popular.
Both Kraiselburd and Fascetto had benefited from the “Revolución Libertadora” – a military uprising that overthrew Juan Domingo Perón in 1955 and remained in power until 1958. The military forces transferred newspaper El Día’s stock to Kraiselburd and Fascetto.
