Austrian immigration to Chile
In the 19th century, famines in Europe and the expulsion of Protestants from Austria led to waves of Austrian immigration to Latin America. A notable settlement of Tyrolean Protestants in Chile is Los Bajos, Frutillar, in the Llanquihue Province.
Chilean coup d'état
As a consequence of the Chilean coup d'état, in 1973 about 1,500 Chilean refugees came to Vienna. In May 2006, the President of Chile Michelle Bachelet met with hundreds of members of the Chilean Viennese community at the Rathaus, Vienna.
