How do you convey to one of your students the profound respect and sense of humility you felt when you met a survivor of torture?
It is not clear that the experience of meeting someone like Carmen Quintana, a young women who suffered burns to two-thirds of her body and was left on the side of a road by military personnel following a protest against the Pinochet regime, or working alongside a person like Alejandro Artucio Rodriguez1 who was tortured because of his commitment to providing legal services to those accused of political offences, can be fully explained by a teacher when sitting in a University classroom. You can describe the event and try to articulate your emotions at the time, but it is not always clear that the ongoing influence on your life can be put into words.
