On Friday, October 16, two days before the anniversary of the so-called ‘social outburst’ of 2019, a group of protesters painted red the statue of General Manuel Baquedano in the square of the same name, popularly renamed ‘Plaza Dignidad’. The reactions were swift: in less than 24 hours, the statue was repainted in its original color, and the mayor of Santiago, Felipe Alessandri, declared in the media that he thought it was a “bad omen” that “they have already violated the monument of General Baquedano”. Later, the Army’s communications department issued a communiqué in which it condemned the act, requesting the National Monuments Council to “exhaust the measures to provide greater security standards to the monument” or its transfer “so that it remains under the protection and safeguard of the Chilean Army”.
This definition used by the council has, in my opinion, two main characteristics. On the one hand, it is a tautological definition, since the Council protects monuments that are such because the Council declares them to be monuments. Then, and as a consequence of the above, this definition reflects the centralism – and arbitrariness – of the decisions on what is given sufficient value within ‘national history and culture’ to separate it from the rest of the everyday objects and places, endorsing them with the category of ‘monument’. In the discussions about the new heritage law, different organizations have expressed their concern about these issues. The Frente por el Patrimonio – a grouping of different organizations related to the issue, including the Asociación Chilena de Barrios y Zonas Patrimoniales, the Colegio de Arqueólogos y Arqueólogas de Chile, the Sindicato de Actores y Actrices de Chile, the Asociación Nacional de Trabajadores del Patrimonio, the Red Sitios de Memoria and the Comunidad Historia Mapuche, among others – has in fact demanded an increase in citizen participation in decisions about what is considered heritage and its conservation.

In Zaragoza, where the C.N.T. is solidly implanted, there is a general in charge of the organic division with a reputation as a republican and a Mason; but Cabanellas was engaged in the conspiracy. This is what the C.N.T. militants gathered in assembly two days before did not know, they approved the conduct of their leaders Abós and Ejarque to continue in contact with the civil and military authorities while waiting for events, there they rejected the proposals of Chueca aimed at seizing weapons for combat. Also the civil governor, Vera Coronel, believed in the loyalty of Cabanellas and appeased not only the anarchists but also the republicans and socialists, with less implantation in Zaragoza.
The capitals continued to be cities very close to the front, dominated by military life with all its consequences, although Zaragoza, an important city, also had a lively rearguard life, and due to its proximity to Navarra, sometimes acquired a “requeté” tone.
The escape from Arnhem
With the support of some artillery pieces, two machine guns, rifles, bayonets and swords, the Russians advanced against the astonished, stupefied and horrified German soldiers, who, in their terror at this nightmarish sight, were unable to maintain their momentum. On colliding with the enemy, they lost their cohesion and retreated in disorderly fashion, leaving behind some casualties, weapons, ammunition and equipment. The smoking ruins of Osowiec remained in Russian hands and for some days continued to be shelled by German artillery. On August 24, the Russians evacuated the place and the few survivors destroyed what was left of the fortress and what could be of use to the enemy. The German Army advanced to occupy the site. How did it come to this?
It is estimated that during the siege more than 500,000 shells were used and about a dozen assaults were launched with the Kaiser’s infantry to try to take the position. The stronghold was engulfed in fire and smoke, death and destruction, being reduced to ruins that were tenaciously defended by the Tsarist soldiers. Witnesses, impressed by the sight of this war armageddon, considered that it was impossible for anyone to come out of that hell alive. However, the determination of the Russian defenders led the Germans to make the decision to use chemical weapons, specifically chlorine gas, against the ruins of the fortress.

The Liberation of Arnhem, also known as Operation Wrath and also Operation Fast Wrath, was a military operation to seize the city of Arnhem in April 1945, during the final stages of World War II. It is occasionally referred to as the Second Battle of Arnhem or the Liberation of Arnhem. The operation was part of the liberation of the Netherlands by the First Canadian Army and was led by the 49th British Infantry Division, supported by the assets of the 5th Canadian Armoured Division, British Royal Air Force air strikes and British Royal Navy ships.
The operation began on April 12, 1945 and proceeded to plan the assault to see how the three infantry brigades of the 49th Division would pass through the city. Within four days, Arnhem was fully under Allied control which allowed the Canadians to advance further into the Netherlands. Less than two weeks after the battle, a general truce ended major combat operations in the country and on May 5, the German commander-in-chief in the Netherlands surrendered to the Canadian Army. Three days later, Germany surrendered unconditionally, ending the war in Europe.
