Authors: Gutmaro Gómez Bravo and Diego Martínez López.
This book is a journey through the Europe dominated by the Third Reich and the insertion of the Spaniards into the macabre network of terror that would end with their deportation within the walls of those enclosures destined for slave labour in the heart of the Austrian Danube. This slave labour was the central element of punishment and discipline in the “KL” or Nazi concentration system. A brutal world in constant evolution marked by the economic and wartime needs of the war, until its final acceleration between 1944 and 1945.
This is the story of the losers, of all the losers of wars, civil or world, and especially of those who were enslaved by the Third Reich to the point of exhaustion and death. Most of them died far from their birthplace, alone, barely a number, victims of a logic and a context of hatred that had begun to be generated some time before. The German occupation of France and the establishment of the collaborationist Vichy government were decisive for this, but even before that, the Spanish Republicans who crossed the border found themselves in a legal limbo that ended up precipitating their mass deportation to the interior of Europe.
After compiling and studying an important volume of documentation held in more than nine archives and national and international institutions, most of which has been little treated or unpublished until now, the authors of this book recount events that are largely unknown to Spanish society.
