In Spain, some reckon with the country’s complicated history

The dictatorship of Francisco Franco in Spain ended with an agreement signed by leading democratical fractions called The Pact of Forgetting.

The document stated that atrocities committed by Franco’s regime would not be prosecuted or even officially discussed. State institutions were to resign from any forms of commemorating Franco but his material legacy in the shape of monuments and architecture was to remain.

But some activists try to challenge this policy by giving justice to the victims of Franco’s regime. ‪@KrytykaPolitycznaTV‬ went to Madrid to find out about their work.
