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.
