Description

Chapter 2 focuses on the remembering of recent past of human rights violations from the official documents promoted by the State: The National Commission of Truth and Reconciliation of 1991 (Rettig Report) and The National Commission on Political Imprisonment and Torture of 2004 and 2011 (the Valech Report). In this chapter the process of remembering and forgetting is situated in a larger sphere of dictatorships and human rights violations that were experienced in the whole Latin American Southern one and a process that was highly influenced by the Cold War (1950-1990). In this chapter I pay special attention to the impact these two official documents have had on the curriculum of History and thus on the official history textbooks produced by the Chilean Ministry of Education.
