Hortensia Bussi de Allende will inevitably, and she always said “proudly,” be remembered as the widow of Salvador Allende, the democratically elected Marxist president of Chile who died in a coup d’état launched by General Augusto Pinochet in 1973.
But to those Chileans who fought for democracy during the dark years of dictatorship, she was respected, even revered in her own right.
After her husband’s death during Pinochet’s air and ground attack on the presidential palace in Santiago, Bussi fled Pinochet’s death squads and went on, in exile based in Mexico, to become a campaigner for democracy and human rights in her homeland and the other military-oppressed Latin American nations of the time. Known nationally by her nickname Tencha, she became a figurehead among her leftist or moderate compatriots who eventually prevailed over Pinochet in a 1988 referendum, allowing her to return home after 15 years.
