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
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.
Next Tuesday, March 3, 2020, will be presented the book tribute to Enrique Cerdán Tato Todas las sombras del mundo : homenaje póstumo a Enrique Cerdán Tato written by Joaquín Juan Penalva and Manuel Valero Gómez. The presentation will be given by José Carlos Rovira, Professor of Hispanic American Literature at the University of Alicante and organized by the Vice-Rectorate for Culture, Sports and Languages, sede Universidad de Alicante and Center for Latin American Literary Studies Mario Benedetti.
The assistance is free.

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.

Workshop for staff of the Library of the University of Alicante to publicize the portal Devuélveme la voz and its contents in order to guide university people.

This issue, coordinated by Cristina Somolinos, investigates the relationship between censorship and writers, little treated so far, from a gender perspective.
In the same participates the investigator of Devuélveme la voz, Francisco Rojas Claros with his article: "Mujer, censura y disidencia editorial en el segundo franquismo. Una aproximación".
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.
