Rafael Leónidas Trujillo: the dictator who inspired a Nobel Prize

Most Latin American countries were ruled, at some point of the twentieth century, by dictators responsible for countless violations of human rights. Augusto Pinochet, who ruled Chile with an iron fist for almost two decades, was responsible for more than 3,000 executions and hundreds enforced disappearances. During Videla’s dictatorship in Argentina, between 13,000 and 30,000 citizens were “disappeared”, an euphemism for kidnapped, tortured and executed. Castros’ tyranny has committed innumerable crimes since the Cuban Revolution ousted Batista in January 1959, including the extrajudicial execution of 1,234 people.

Similar plans were implemented in Ireland, Denmark, France or Portugal.
