In the last two decades memorial movements and certain types of historiography have firmly gotten into a discussion about memory of the recent Spanish history. It is a fact that this discussion has relatively destabilized the public and hegemonic memory we inherited from Franco's regime and we consolidated during the transition to democracy. Nevertheless, Spanish democracy remains long established on some 1936 war memories that incline not wanting to know or not being able to remember through alternative interpretations. This shows a mischief way of being in the world, especially if we compare it to the subjectivities produced by the gradually introduced public policies on human rights in Latin America.
