"One of the darkest and saddest chapters of history began 75 years ago in Spain. It lasted more than 41 years and even now, 34 years of democracy later, it has not truly ended. In 1936, those who scorned the freedom and democracy of the Spanish Republic began an unjust and illegal war — though perhaps all wars are unjust and illegal. Tens of thousands were tortured, disappeared and executed without trial. About 30,000 children -- the 'Lost Children of Francoism' -- were kidnapped simply because their parents supported the Republic." (06/30/11)
