Observations to share on Spanish Civil War


  • The social inequality and the problems resulting from nationalism play an important role in the aspect of causes for war, but they are not the only ones
  • There are no romantic wars. I am sore thinking that dreams of a better world inspired many people to participate to the fight.
  • SCW has some relation with WWII. It was used as a parade ground for introducing modern weapons and a modern way in leading a war. And even to spread the role of Nazism and Fascism.

  • Balkans is always in war.
  • There are different memories and maybe contradictory between them, about the wars, since a military vision of the facts- speeches of H.Georgiev or military museum of Sofia, for example – to other vision more social that recognise the victims, not the heroes.
  • There are victims on both sides, it doesn`t matter who “started”the conflict!
