The Silence of Others
A chronicle of institutional displacement of the mass genocide by the Francoist clergo-fascist regime in Spain. An amnesty along with the so-called “Pact of Forgetting” (1977) have erased political crimes and made over one thousand victims of terror invisible. Historic images and dozens of survivor testimonies present a survey of the struggle against collective amnesia.
