Generalitat de Catalunya
The recovery of historical memory connected with the fight for democracy in Catalonia and Spain between 1931 and 1980 is one of the public policies carried out by the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan Government). Since 2004, the Catalan Government has sought to draw attention to the origins of current democracy, deriving from the values of Spain’s Second Republic and organised opposition to the dictatorship of General Franco. The institution responsible for carrying out this objective is Memorial Democràtic, which was created to address the demands of Catalan civil society. It is an organisation which works to recover the heritage of memory and supports the initiatives of local governments and nonprofit associations.
