2006 - 2019
For over 35 years my grandfather kept a list of typed names in his wallet. He would often read them, emotional, describing with amazing clarity of detail who they were. They had all been executed at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War and had been missing ever since.
Since I was a child, he told me about them, about their stories, and made me a participant in a life that I knew through his memories. My curiosity and desire to understand led me to many places that held the memory of the conflict and the disappeared. What I liked best was showing him what I had seen on my return.
On the last trip, we went back to his village together to meet the names on the list for the last time.
