The Museum of Memory operates in the building of the National Bureau of Technical Matters (1956 to 1992), a clandestine center for torture, executions, and forced disappearances.
Its origins lie in the discovery of the archive of the Stroessner military dictatorship, “Memory of the World,” in 1992. It has three areas of activity: Expositions; Research, Documentation and Education in Recent History; and Historic and Social Reparation.
It is a space for reflection and dialogue on the past so that visitors may learn and comprehend the factors that make state terrorism possible so as to prevent it from being repeated in the future, and to cultivate a culture of peace.
