In Chile, the magnificent songs of the musician and poet Victor Jara pierce the silence of the curfew. 46 years after his death, Victor Jara continues to inspire the daily life of Chileans. His support for President Salvador Allende was fatal to him. On 11 September 1973, the very day of Augusto Pinochet’s coup, he was arrested by the junta before being tortured and killed by soldiers. “My God ! It’s like killing a nightingale “, reportedly denounced the poet Pablo Neruda after this assassination, before being also a victim of this bloody period of the dictatorship.
