Chile: Museum of Memory

Although these news articles are now a couple of weeks old, I think it's worth pointing out that progress continues on Chile's representative Museum of Memory and Human Rights.
“No one can deny, fail to recognize, play down, or trivialize the tragedy of human rights violations in Chile,” said Bachelet at the ceremony. “Every person needs to examine the past themselves and reflect on the need to improve our coexistence so a similar tragedy never again occurs in our country.”
And she knows what she's talking about.
