The book contains two closely related parties. The first one comes from a seminar, organized by the publishers in April 2017, entitled with the question «was (in) avoidable hit?». The second part concerns the meaning and current meaning of the Museum of memory and human rights, as well as the controversy over whether it should or not to contextualize its permanent exhibition, covering the period of the Popular Unity (UP), and how should that be contextualization.
The presentation will feature the participation of Andrés Pascal Allende, former Secretary-General of the MIR; Mariano Ruiz-Esquide, former Senator DC; Sergio Vitar, former Minister of Presidente Allende; and Ricardo Núñez, former President of the Socialist Party.
