Spanish families want Franco’s victims reburied with dignity

In Spain, 100,000 men, women and children went missing, presumed killed, during the dictator Francisco Franco’s reign of terror.

Many of their bodies were thrown without a trace into mass graves across the country.

After being kept silent for decades, now their families are fighting to have their remains exhumed and reburied with dignity.

But the country is still divided about how to deal with its painful past.
