Last Sunday, May 20, died in Barcelona this journalist and writer born in the town of Vilalba (Lugo) in 1935. He developed most of his career in France. He arrived in Paris in the sixties of the last century and began to work at Radio Televisión Francesa as a music critic and came to direct the cultural service in Spanish and Portuguese of it.
From Ramón Chao we want to highlight his total predisposition and easy treatment that we had when we asked for his collaboration in the birth of the Devuélveme la voz portal. He told us about his experiences and memories of his time at Radio Televisión Francesa and advised us on how many questions we asked him.
Thanks for everything again.

This project has three major objectives. Firstly, to place ‘hunger’ centre stage in the analysis of post-war Francoism (1939-1950). We will study the famine that marked out this decade and other topics which have also been relatively neglected by specialists such as everyday life and the social policies developed by the ‘New State’.
Secondly, bearing in mind both the importance and neglect of the 1950s, we will examine socio-economic and demographic aspects of this decade as well as the drives behind and the consequences of the regime’s social policies.
Thirdly, we will introduce the role of memory in the study of the two decades. We will explain the politics of memory at the local level and we will explore the social memory of the ‘hunger years’, understood as a key element in the creation of future social attitudes.

The Monument to the Martyrs of Liberty was a place of democratic memory emblematic of the city of Alicante, which the Francoist authorities eliminated in the immediate postwar period. After the centenary of its inauguration, the University of Alicante has contributed to preserve the memory with an exhibition that compiles documents, historical information and a significant sample of various postcards illustrated with the photographs of the Monument to the Martyrs of Liberty, which preserve the memory of the main place of democratic memory absent from Alicante.
