Héctor Timerman was born in Buenos Aires to Risha (née Mindlin) and Jacobo Timerman. He is of Lithuanian Jewish descent.
Timerman was born in Bar, Ukraine, to Jewish parents Eve Berman and Nathan Timerman.

Timerman, an Argentine Jewish immigrant from Ukraine, had previously launched numerous successful news publications in Argentina, notably "Primera Plana" and "Confirmado" news magazines.

President Videla complained to a newly appointed Israeli ambassador in 1980 that Timerman was “orchestrating a campaign to defame Argentina around the world.” The Argentine government maintained that Timerman had been arrested mostly because of his involvement with David Graiver. Argentine diplomats continued to pressure Israel on the topic, saying that Timerman "takes the name of the Holocaust in vain by comparing Argentina today with Nazi Germany". Israel reduced its official discussion of Timerman, retracting from the "Southern Cone" a pamphlet that discussed awards he received in Israel.
