    • Synopsis
    • In the spring of next year 2015 is the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps of Mauthausen, Gusen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Neuengamme, places where thousands of Spanish Republicans were deported. Memory of Ashes features the heartbreaking testimony of four survivors of the Nazi horror:
      Eduardo Escot, Alfonso Cañete, José Marfil and Juan Camacho, who represent the voice
      of thousands of Spanish Republicans who were killed in the extermination camps. The
      story of these men full of ideals flows through all the great dramas of the 20th Century:
      misery, fascism, war, deportation, genocide, exile. This documentary also shows the other
      side of the coin, their relatives, specially women, who remained in the Francoist Spain,
      thinking that they were missing since the Spanish Civil War. It is amazing that, even today,
      there are people that find out that their father, uncle or grandfather ended their days as a
      prisoner in such macabre places of Europe as Mauthausen, Gusen, Buchenwald, Dachau,
      Neuengamme …
