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
The Spanish Civil War was followed by a long and bloody dictatorship where the victors decided the fate of the defeated. To justify itself, the Franco regime falsified history and imposed its own "Historical Memory".
The doctor in history Francisco Rojas Claros explains how the truth was manipulated during the Franco regime and how the memory and history of all Spaniards could be recovered.
Social Center of San Vicente del Raspeig (Cervantes st., 10) on October 11 at 7:00 p.m.
