Museum of Memory and Human Rights

The fact that Chile endured dictatorship for 17 years in the recent past (1973 - 1990) is fact; what this museum was able to do was to help visitors understand the emotions and stories behind the facts. We were there for 3 hours using an audio tour and stopping to watch videos along the way; we got a good overview but felt compelled to want to know more.

This photo was taken in the spacious entry area prior to going into the three story high museum itself. The exhibits are of posters depicting the many international solidarity movements and events throughout the years of Pinochet's regime.

Taffy has posted a photo taken at the Santiago City Cemetery that shows where some of those who suffered during those years were buried.
Awesome picture.

What you did here that I love is capture how 'small' it felt to be amidst such powerful forces. That was the most amazing afternoon of our trip -- so different than our four days in the desert!

Wow having the person in the shot really places everything in perspective. those screens are so big, so you get a very small feeling. Which goes so well with the underlying story!
