The study of the Spanish Civil War cannot be thoroughly understood without a study of the social and political atmosphere previous to the martial confrontation as well as of the process of liquidation of this transcendental historical event. The victorious faction claimed that the ceasing of military operations put an end to the war, but the war did not finish then. For many years, the use of force was still alive, unilaterally, under the form of bloody repression and the long exile of the defeated. Many other facts consist in the imposed moral and psychological suffering, the cultural damage, the banishment and the repercussions of these imponderables on millions of homes. Economic and social afflictions caused to the individuals and to society as a whole are of great weight, In order to appreciate the slow and cruel way chosen by the franquist regime to liquidate the Spanish Civil War it is necessary to illustrate in detail some of the means used. Their failure shows the egoism and meanness of the dictatorial regime.
