"La guerra infinita" will discover the different facets of the work of the photographer Antoni Campañà (Arbúcies, 1906-Sant Cugat del Vallès, 1989), focusing on the photographs he took during the Spanish Civil War, photographs that the family found by chance in 2018. This set of images, of great artistic quality and historical relevance, were hidden by the artist himself in a box, and they remained in it for more than seventy years, from the end of the Civil War until their discovery.

University Library has made the video "My wife does not understand me: stereotypes of women in the radio advertising of the Franco regime" as an activity for Women's Day 2021.
The Franco regime was betting on a model of women where the main thing was that she was a mother and wife devoted to the man and taking care of the home.
This reality is reflected in the video that has been produced with the contents of the sound fund of Radio Alcoy (hosted on our Internet portal) where there is a collection of around 100 radio spots broadcast, especially in the 60s of the century XX.
This is a book about Basque nationalism and its evolution during the central decades of the 20th century, through the analysis of the figure of Telesforo Monzón (1904-1981), one of its most influential politicians, first in the ranks of the PNV and later in Herri Batasuna. He maintained an enormous political leadership from the Second Republic to the Transition although, even today, a partial image of his figure persists. A schematic memory has been transmitted that reduces the character to a symbol of the national unity, however, this representation does not correspond to the real story of Telesforo Monzón, much more complex and contradictory.

At the end of the Spanish Civil War, thousands of Republican prisoners were taken to the Albatera concentration camp (Alicante) where they were held in subhuman conditions. There they lived overcrowded, subjected to harassment and torture, poorly fed and with diseases. The arbitrary executions that were carried out there, regardless of any judicial process, caused a number of deaths that have yet to be assessed.
The article reveals the results of an investigation that has made it possible to locate the location of some of the mass graves where the bodies of the reprisals were buried in the concentration camp.
