Women’s Voices from Franco’s Prisons
This video showcases the testimony of female political prisoners from the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. These interviews have been edited and subtitled in English by students from the University of Sheffield, as part of a research project investigating life writing by female political prisoners during the Civil War and the Franco dictatorship, to recognise the 75th anniversary of the end of the war. The interviews present an engaging, personal commentary on life under the Franco regime, discussing, amongst other things, political affiliation, memories of the war, and imprisonment.
The original interviews come from an online archive called ‘The Spanish Civil War Memory Project,’ created by the University of California, San Diego, which offers free access to a collection of interviews with over a hundred people who lived through the Spanish Civil War.
