The Memorial House Museum
An area of analysis and reflection regarding Colombia's armed conflict.
A call for peace
In such difficult times we're going through, it's necessary that initiatives arise like the Memorial House of Medellín: we're talking about a courageous centre with content that is more than bold in which problems are addressed that have been causing Colombia's armed conflict on all sides over decades. To walk round the rooms is a shocking experience, but in the end it's necessary to understand and fairly assess any kind of senseless violence. First and foremost, this place is intended for analysis and reflection. Through personal testimonies, files, brief explanations, and artistic suggestions, the memorial house shows a complete review of the last few years to deal with the cruelty of the conflicts and to keep the victim's memories alive, putting them into the foreground. Now you know: 'el pueblo que no conoce su historia está condenado a repetirla' (a nation that doesn't know its history is doomed to repeat it). A must-visit.
