Description Vladimir Herzog (27 June 1937- 25 October 1975) nicknamed Vlado, was a Brazilian journalist, university professor and playwright of Croatian Jewish origin. He also developed a taste for photography, because of his film projects. In the family and among his friends was called Vlado (that is usual Croatian abbreviation for the name Vladimir).Herzog was a member of the Brazilian Communist Party and was active in the civil resistance movement against the Brazilian military government. In October 1975, Herzog, then editor in chief of TV Cultura, was tortured to death by the political police of the military dictatorship, which later forged his suicide. Over 37 years later, his death certificate was revised to say that Herzog had in fact died as a result of torture by the army at DOI-CODI. His death had a great impact on the Brazilian society, marking the beginning of the redemocratization process of the country. According to journalist Srgio Gomes, Herzog is a 'symbol of the struggle for democracy, freedom, and justice'.
