Contra la impunidad del franquismo
Explanation about why this video for all my not Spanish-speaking readers: this video is about the Historical Memory of the Spanish people that lost so many loved ones before, during and after the Civil War and are still guessing, after all these years, what happened to them, where they are burried, where the children were send to. There was a pact between parties at the time, just after Franco died, to let all the passed misery be, but this pact has proved to be the knive that separates Spain in two, still and until this day! In the video, actors come back as 'spirits' of people killed for the sake of killing oponents of the 'Dictadura de Franco y el franquismo' (1937-1975).
No tuve juício, ni abogado ni sentencia... : I didn't get a trial, nor a lawyer, nor was I sentenced...
By putting this video on my blog I add my blog and bloggername to the list of those who want this Historical Memory to be opened and investigated. The brave and excellent judge Baltasar Garzón was incriminated last year by Falange, the still active and ultra right semi-political action group, that was founded in the days of Franco. Baltasar Garzón was investigating some of the crimes commited by people that still find their way in Spanish politics...... still! Baltasar Garzón is at the moment working in the International Court of Justice in The Hague. In Spain he was relieved of his job, he will probably have to go to court in September this year.
A wound as deep as this, caused by the unopened files of the crimes of the Spanish Civil War should never have been covered, but should have been rinsed out a long time ago..... There is no way Spanish society will overcome the pain,.....no way, unless everything is brought out in the open and people can finally burry their death.
With my deepest respect to all those who have to live with the lie, still without knowing the truth!
