Between historical memory and restorative justice: The case of contemporary Spain - The article considers some political and legal questions related to the recovery of the historical memory of Republican combatants and the opponents of Franco's dictatorship. This is one of the most important social phenomena of recent years in Spain and it culminated in the so-called Ley de memoria histórica (December 2007), promoted by the socialists. This law represents a controversial change from a paradigm of oblivion, established during the peaceful Transition to Democracy, to a form of restorative justice through the memory of victims. It can also be interpreted as the first step towards developing a sort of anti-Francoist civil religion.
