Why this story is important
This is a very important interview with older people who recount their past experience in the first person. Recalling this past history in Catalonia and in Spain in general is still very painful. It was a time when there was no freedom of expression and people could not demonstrate very easily. Those who were struggling for the dignity of workers in Spain constituted the “antifascist” avant-garde. International solidarity was then a very important element of strength. It was a relevant choice, because the memory of social movements of the past is an important tool for the transformation of present-day society.
