Memoria Perdida featured in the Washington Post

Memoria Perdida, the photo book on Spain’s lack of historical memory, featured in the Washington Post: “Miquel Gonzalez, a photographer with Spanish roots living in Holland, became frustrated at the lack of memorials at the sites of atrocities committed against the Spanish people during the Spanish Civil War and under the repressive regime of Francisco Franco. According to Gonzalez, as many as 114,000 bodies of those killed during that period in Spain’s history are still in unmarked mass graves on the edges of towns and villages. Many of the sites have been lost or forgotten, and some have been covered up by new construction, erasing any sign of the past. Spurred by his frustration, Gonzalez spent three years traveling Spain, searching for what he calls its “lost memory.”
The photobook and selected prints are available in my webstore.

The work will be exhibited 10.5. to 18.11.2018 in the Montjuïc Castle in Barcelona.

To this day the bodies of up to 114,000 ‘disappeared’ from the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939, and the dictatorship of Francisco Franco, 1939-1975, lie in unmarked mass graves in roadsides, on the edges of towns and villages, in ravines or in fields.
The sites of the mass graves and related atrocity sites that have not been excavated or commemorated to this day. Many sites have been lost, have been hidden by new constructions or have disappeared without any hint or sign remembering their cruel past, revealing a lack of historical memory and justice in Spain’s society.
