CAUDET, Francisco. Las abarcas de Fontanosas, o cuando la memoria/escritura es la memoria/escritura de uno mismo. Olivar [online]. 2006, vol.7, n.8, pp. 45-62. ISSN 1852-4478.
Making a story about the past may be a challenging task, because of the existing tensions between memory and writing, especially when a society carries a traumatic experience in its recent past. Focusing on the tensions between memory and writing, this article puts forward a reflection about the possibilities of telling the recent past in Spain around the named "pact of silence". The starting point of this analysis is the anonymous letter from a soldier of Franco's army, written in a confessional tone, which, appearing half a century later, helped to find and exhume the remains of a group of shot soldiers.
