Photographs, showcases with objects and historical documents comprise this exhibition organized by the Archivo de la Democracia in collaboration with the Civic Committee of Alicante for the recovery of historical memory.
The exhibition brings together the events of that historic moment as well as repression and exile that accompanied the implementation of the Franco dictatorship. In the month of March 1939 the province and the city of Alicante had a great role in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War: the last Republican Government was installed in Medio Vinalopó, thousands of Republicans took to exile aboard several ships, notably the Stanbrook, and the tragedy in Alicante port where concentrated around fifteen thousand people waiting for boats that would enable them escape.
Six notebooks, manuscripts and some personal letters, written by Carlos González Posada, are a unique testimony of the Spanish Civil War.
They were written every day, and not suffered modifications. They are frozen perceptions, experiences and impressions of a person belonging to the Republican middle class. They are family and experiences of life in the Republican rearguard and in the sublevada, with descriptions of the European international situation.
These diaries were the basis of the book published in 2011 by ediotorial Comares, "Diario de la Revolución y de la Guerra (1936-1939)" Carlos Ramón Manuel González-Posada y Diaz, with a foreword by the grandson of the author, Carlos Oppé and a preliminary study of Miguel Ángel del Arco Blanco.
Carlos González-Posada (1890-1948) was a Spanish jurist, linked to the free institution of education and Secretary of the Socialist Julián Besteiro during the cutting of the II Republic.
