A grave at last

84 years and 205 days after his assassination by the Franco regime, Alfonso Fontiveros Muñoz is laid to rest. However, Spain continues to find it difficult to deal with the memory of the civil war and dictatorship. To this day, surviving relatives are subject to political arbitrariness when searching for their loved ones. The country still seems to be asking itself: how much remembrance is enough?
