President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca visited the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago. The museum commemorates the victims of human rights violations during the civic-military regime led by Augusto Pinochet between 1973 and 1990. It was inaugurated by President Michelle Bachelet on January 11, 2010, and formed part of government works celebrating the bicentennial of Chile.
“Every day, our actions are creating memories in the lives of our children. Let us ensure that they remember us for our values, for our integrity, and for our commitment to universal human rights. Let our legacy be the love we create in this world, for the benefit of all humanity”, President Coleiro Preca wrote in the museum’s book of visitors.
