This marks the final event of “Victims of Franquismo: A Reparation that Never Comes,” a panel series organized by Spanish award-winning documentary filmmaker and journalist Montse Armengou.
The series analyzes the effects of violent repression during the almost 40 years (1939-1975) of Franco’s dictatorship in Spain. These conversations consider how instruments of remembering and reparation have emerged beyond state sectors and in the absence of government policies, with the aim of opening means of recovery and reclamation for victims and their descendants.
Since 1997, King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center of New York University has centered on increasing awareness of Spain and the Spanish-speaking world at NYU and fostering cultural and intellectual exchange. Having established itself with numerous well-received programs, it offers a wide array of lectures, conferences, readings, screenings, exhibitions, among different special events, with the aim of reaching a growing audience while deepening its commitment to its current constituency.
