In the immediate days following the coup, the national soccer stadium in Santiago was converted into the country’s largest detention center, as thousands of Chilean men and women were arrested and taken there, many of whom were tortured and killed. The stadium became synonymous with the regime’s abuses and served as a physical metaphor for what was taking place in the country: a place of national celebration and unity now representing brutality and imprisonment.
