Classroom Clip

Recognizing and Standing Up to Injustice (Clip 1 of 1)

In this clip, associated with the lesson plan for The Judge and the General, Chileans remember the plight of political prisoners who were "disappeared" during Pinochet's regime. Judge Juan Guzmán talks about writing rejections of appeals to investigate the disappearances earlier in his career. Students should discuss why some people felt compelled to act in the face of injustice while others, such as Judge Guzmán earlier in his career, didn't seem to recognize what was happening.
