Franco’s repression on the railway

Franco’s repression on the railway

November 28, 2019

Madrid Railway Museum

 

This Railway Historical Memory Day has the purpose of deepening the historical knowledge of what Franco’s repression on the railway meant.

That is why it has brought together a group of accredited researchers with a double purpose. On the one hand, acrisolar the understanding of all repressive chapters. And, on the other, to speak about the analytical meaning and the social repercussion that the memoralist movement has generated during these last years. The only way to achieve these purposes is to organize a day that brings together different knowledge disciplines and different approaches. It is intended both to confirm paradigms and to open new lines of interpretation.

Miriam Saqqa will give the lecture: Where? Rail mass grave and exile.

Crime Scenes and Sites of Memory. Second International Conference on Perpetrators of Mass

Crime Scenes and Sites of Memory

Second International Conference on Perpetrators of Mass

 

12-15th November 2019

Centre Museístic La Beneficència, Valencia

 

Mass crimes, acts of genocide and political violence have a “metaphysical” dimension against the human being, as highlighted by such diverse authors as Elie Wiesel and Vladimir Jankélévitch. However, whatever their conceptual scope, they are concrete acts that take place in precise places, take place in a unique time and their material actors are, at the end of the day, ordinary people. Reconstructing the scenes that result from these acts means returning to the actions the immediacy and even the banality that they had at the time of their exercise. Now, once the facts have been reconstructed, these same scenarios acquire a new symbolic and cultural condition, they are resemantized in different social spheres: in the criminal processes that reconstruct them, in the memory of victims, executioners and witnesses, in the visual and written archives that describe them and, last but not least, in artistic, literary and cinematographic recreation.

Francisco Ferrándiz will give the conference: Scenarios of crime against humanity: Mass Graves, Forensic Rescue and Phantom Militarism in Spain
