Roberto Eisenmann III, president of the foundation, said the museum’s initiative stems from the need to train citizens in democratic values, living in freedom and respect for human rights, regardless of their political and social origins or economic situations.
Betty Brannan Jaén, honorary president of the foundation, said that this museum will initially cover the period during which there was a prolonged and systematic violation of human rights and individual freedoms of Panamanians to document the facts, and the point of departure will be the report of the truth commission.
In the museum of freedom and human rights, provable facts are presented, without attempting to make judgments.
The Board of the foundation for democracy and freedom includes Betty Brannan Jaén, Roberto Eisenmann III, Raul A. R. Morales, Daniel R. P. Piche and Irving A Halman B.
This museum of freedom, human rights and democracy has the primary goal of helping to preserve democracy and enrich the culture of Panama.
The planned museum and its structure will be of approximately 3.500 m2 in area and will be located on the Amador Causeway.
The Democracy and Freedom Foundation upholds values based on respect for human rights, the rule of law, equality before the law, democracy, justice and freedom, based on the strength of democratic convictions, the vocation to serve the homeland and the commitment to teaching with no strings attached.
