Project of the University of Alicante for the reconstruction of our history through radio sound material, focusing on the years of the Franco regime and the transition to democracy
En el año 1966, en el Salón de la Mutualité de París, se rindió un homenaje público a Rafael Albertí auspiciado por una serie de reconocidos hispanistas franceses y al que acudieron personalidades españolas tanto del interior de nuestro país como del exilio. Al final del acto una serie de artistas plásticos españoles le regalaron al poeta una carpeta que contenía obras creadas por los mismos para el homenaje.
Esta carpeta y su contenido es el que se puede ver ahora en París en la sede del Instituto Cervantes. Como complemento a la exposición, en el portal Devuélveme la voz se puede seguir el acto casi al completo porque el mismo fue grabado y transmitido por Radio París
New publication by Francisco Rojas Claros based on the sound collection of Devuélveme la voz.
This article analyzes the interviews that 'Radio París' made to several hispanist during the second part of Francoism, whose publications, banned in our country, offered a new and different vision of the contemporary history of Spain in contrast to the forged version of dictatorship. Personalities like Hugh Thomas, Carlos M. Rama, Herbert R. Southworth, Max Gallo, Jacques Georgel, Jean Becarut, Elena de la Souchère, Jean Descola and Jacques Pinglé. On the other hand, showes the reaction of the regime´s cultural dirigisme against such works, through the records of book´s censorship and the Boletín de orientación bibliográfica.
The end of this year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Burgos Process, the council of war against 16 members of ETA that convulsed Spanish politics and marked the beginning of the end of the Francoism. The international repercussion was very wide and achieved, together with the triumph of the moderate theses in the Government, that Franco will pardon those sentenced to death in the judgment.
Ángel Amigo is the producer and scriptwriter of this documentary, which is in the making, which brings us back to the sounds that were heard in the courtroom thanks to the clandestine recordings made by the prisoners' lawyers. The lack of images has been solved with the realization of drawings in the style of those made in the judicial chronicles of the newspapers.
A documentary in the making phase that we hope to see at the end of this year and where, from Devuélveme la voz, we have collaborated in the documentation phase of it.
This page, which opens the UA Archive of Democracy, aims to recover the memory, deepen and disseminate the knowledge of one of the most forgotten exiles, that of the Spanish Republicans in the lands of North Africa, from the end of the civil war, in March 1939 to 1962, the date of independence of Algeria, the country that then under French colonial administration received the largest contingent of refugees. We are talking about the life and destiny of some 15,000 Spaniards, most of them men, but also women and children, sometimes entire families, who left everything to save and rebuild their lives.
The project has been coordinated and carried out by Juan Martínez Leal, scientist and advisor to the Archive of Democracy.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the arrival to the presidency of the Republic of Chile of Salvador Allende and the socialist experience in this country. This democratic experience, together with the subsequent coup d'etat that the Pinochet dictatorship generated, had great worldwide repercussions. The dictatorship not only eliminated the opposition in Chile but also inaugurated an extreme neoliberal model that seems to have been answered by the current Chilean society.
We inaugurate a new section dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of oral memory with the following objectives:
-Preserve and disseminate our collective memory, especially that referred to the second half of the twentieth century.
-Serve as an archive of the fieldwork of researchers or anyone with similar recordings
-Be an instrument that serves research and dissemination of knowledge based on open access.
It has begun with the interviews that Francisco Moreno and Juan Martinez conducted to Julián Antonio Ramírez who served as the basis for the latter's memoir. Gradually, content will be added based on the donations received.
