The Other 9-11: Reflections on the Anniversary of the 1973 Coup in Chile. “Secrets of State: The Declassified History of the Chilean Dictatorship” Exhibit

Wednesday, September 27, 2023
8:00 AM-5:00 PM
555, II Gallery Weiser Hall Map
The documents in this exhibit were declassified and made public as a result of years of research and FOIA advocacy by those promoting openness, particularly members of the National Security Archive. In the wake of the historic arrest in London of General Pinochet in October 1998, their efforts, among others, led President Bill Clinton to launch a special Chile Declassification Project in 1999 and the eventual release of over 24,000 formerly top secret documents.

Curated by Peter Kornbluh (Director of the Chile Documentation Project at the National Security Archive, an NGO dedicated to freedom of information and transparency), this exhibit was co-designed by Eimeel Castillo (Ph.D. Candidate in History and Women’s and Gender Studies) and Victoria Langland (Associate Professor of History).
