Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about Francoist repression and gross misrepresentation made by the Francoist dictatorship during the Spanish Civil War. Francoist economic repression had two clearly different phases. The first phase took place during the Civil War, and consisted of plundering and seizing the assets of the "Reds", "the originators", it was said, "of the material and spiritual harm to Spain". The second phase was deployed when the civil war ended. It set in motion throughout Spain an extensive repressive mechanism with the constitution of Exceptional Courts, which terminated their activity in 1945, although the political responsibilities remained active until 1966. Parallel to the physical repression two other circles of repression were activated in Andalusia: the professional purges and the seizure of assets. This is a repression that thousands of Andalusians suffered in silence.
