Watch the whole of history unfold on this SPEAKING OF SPAIN PLAYLIST
Episode 10. brings us into the conflictive 1930's when the country divides into the Nationalist/Reactionary Moustached Ones or the Scruffy Communist/Anarchic Optimists - Never has a civil war been been reduced to such simple labels but in this episode the Gazpachomonk does just that.
And whilst doing so he ponders on why the wounds - both physical and ideological of the civil war - were never allowed to heal, and asks why this is as important today as it was back in the 1930’s.
The History of Spain is part of a joint project by members of Writers and Bloggers About Spain (WABAS). 12 members are uploading a video a day until Dec. 24th. Search twitter or Youtube for the hashtag #wabas12
