The museum known as Memorial 68 is a space that tells the story of the protests in Mexico, from LGBT marches to those led by seamstresses affected by the 1985 earthquake. However, the key point of the exhibition is the student protests of 1968 and the violent attack on these activists that occurred a few steps away from the museum itself.
The year 1968 was marked by protests around the world, from the United States to France to Japan. In Mexico, a large part of the year’s protests occurred at Mexico City’s Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), which currently manages the building where the memorial is located. The year 1968 was also important in Mexico because the country was set to host the Olympics in October.
