Abstract

This contribution examines how conflicting memories of the Spanish civil war (1936-1939) and Franco’s dictatorship (1939-1975) represent the Spanish nation. In concrete terms we examine the social and political debate surrounding the return of the Salamanca documents to Catalonia (2001-2006). This case reflects the painful handling of Spain's war past, and the controversial place it occupies in Spanish democracy. The study of a journalistic discourse on the Salamanca issue shows how social, cultural, and political issues have shaped the Spanish nation.
