SANTIAGO | Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos (Museum of Memory and Human Rights) is a museum in Santiago’s Qunita Normal neighbourhood that seeks to make known the systematic human rights violations committed by Augusto Pinochet’s government between 1973 and 1990. Its mission is to allow dignity for victims and their families, stimulate reflection and debate and to promote respect and tolerance in order that these events never happen again.

The museum was inaugurated in 2010 and takes visitors through the story of what happened in Chile during this time using a series objects, documents and archives presented over three levels in different settings and formats. Things like torture devices used during the Pinochet dictatorship, letters to family members by prisoners held in detention, newspaper clippings, video, photography, and testimony from survivors.

As well as the specific topic of Chilean human rights abuses during the Pinochet dictatorship, the museum also deals with the topic of human rights more generally, in order to promote values that will allow the construction a society more caring, equal and tolerant.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
