Introduction: Peru has a rich and complex history that includes numerous political and social conflicts. One such event in recent history is known as the “Wall of Shame.”
Answer: The “Wall of Shame” refers to a concrete wall built in the early 1990s in the district of Ate in Lima, Peru. The wall was built to separate two neighborhoods, one of which was a high-income area, and the other a low-income area. The wall became a symbol of social inequality and discrimination, and protests eventually led to its demolition in 1998.
Conclusion: The “Wall of Shame” in Peru’s capital city, Lima, serves as a stark reminder of the country’s social and economic disparities. While the wall no longer stands, its legacy remains, and efforts to address social inequality continue to this day.
