The Spanish Holocaust: Inquisition and Extermination in Twentieth-Century Spain

by Paul Preston - £12.99  HarperCollins Publishers (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780006386957 | ISBN 10: 0006386954

Selected as the Sunday Times History Book of the Year for 2012, this is a meticulous work of scholarship from the foremost historian of 20th-century Spain.
 
The culmination of more than a decade of research, The Spanish Holocaust seeks to reflect the intense horrors visited upon Spain during its ferocious civil war, the consequences of which still reverberate bitterly today.
 
The brutal, murderous persecution of Spaniards between 1936 and 1945 is a truth that should have been told long ago. Paul Preston here offers the first comprehensive picture of what he terms “the Spanish Holocaust”: mass extra-judicial murder of some 200,000 victims, cursory military trials, torture, the systematic abuse of women and children, sweeping imprisonment, the horrors of exile. Those culpable for crimes committed on both sides of the Civil War are named; their victims identified. Sunday Times illuminates one of the darkest, least-known eras of modern European history.
