September 11 is a date that makes us think about a lot of different things. In 1973, the democratically elected president Salvador Allende was overthrown in a coup d’état in Chile.

September 11 also makes us think of the attacks on Word Trade Center in 2001.

Last but not least, September 11 makes us think of the former minister of foreign affairs Anna Lindh who was murdered in 2003.
