Mujer y Memoria (Woman and Memory)

City University of New York & Aránzazu Borrachero

Mujer y Memoria. Web archive for oral history projects on gendered approaches to fascism and democracy in 20th century Spain

The archive has two different projects:

Mothers and daughters of the Spanish Transition to Democracy
The first of these projects, Mothers and daughters of the Spanish Transition to Democracy, is an audiovisual archive that gathers, preserves and provides access to the testimonies of Spanish women who became adults and mothers during the thirty-six year Francoist dictatorship. Their daughters, who came of age during the Spanish transition to democracy (la "Transición") and its subsequent democratic governments, interview them about their recollections of the pre-democracy years and the socio-cultural differences they perceive between the two generations.

Stolen Motherhoods

Stolen Motherhoods, the most recent Women and Memory project, focuses on the unresolved disappearance of children during Spain's fascist dictatorship and its first years of democracy (1939-1980s). It is a well-documented testimonial archive that highlights the victims' political agency, thus counteracting the distorted media treatment of their cases in Spain.

Banc Memorial de Catalunya

Memorial Democràtic is an institution of the Generalitat de Catalunya whose mission is the recovery, commemoration and promotion of democratic memory in Catalonia (1931-1980). This historical period includes the Second Republic, the Civil War, the Franco dictatorship and the transition to democracy. The Democratic Memorial places special emphasis on the recovery of the memory of victims for ideological, conscientious, religious or social reasons, as well as on the repression perpetrated by the Franco dictatorship on individuals and groups (including language and Catalan culture), exile and deportation.

The Democratic Memorial commemorates the anti-Franco struggle and the transition to democracy until the first elections to the Parliament of Catalonia. It puts at the center of its activity the dignity of the person, democratic values and respect for human rights so that barbarism is not repeated here or anywhere.

Memories of the Occupation in Greece

In Germany, very little is known about the German occupation of Greece. In Greece, however, the occupation and the crimes committed remain very present. For the project "Memories of the Occupation of Greece" 93 biographical interviews with Greek contemporary witnesses have been filmed. Their memories of the occupation will be preserved for the future and edited for presentation on the internet.

The project is divided in two phases. At the first phase the interviews will be conducted.
The recording of interviews is very important because the number of witnesses is reduced day by day. The objective is to cover a representative sample of various witness categories, such as resistance fighters, concentration camp inmates, Jews and political prisoners alike, Shoah survivors, witnesses of reprisal massacres etc.
The survivors of the German Occupation in Greece narrate their life- histories and they also have the chance to narrate their personal postwar "german- greek" experience. The interviews provide an opportunity to preserve history from oblivion and they are an indispensable element of the Greek culture of remembrance.
The fact that the interviews have been conducted 70 years after the war makes the archive an exemplary historical source. Such a comprehensive collection of interviews has not been done before in Greece.

Moneda Ibérica

MIB (Moneda Ibérica) is a knowledge base for the study, conservation, cataloging, archiving and dissemination of the ancient numismatic heritage of the Iberian Peninsula and southern France.

It deals with the pre-imperial coinage of Iberia / Hispania and southern Gaul, issued during the 6th-1st centuries BC.

The base of the system is an archive made up of more than 100,000 coin tokens from Greek, Punic / Carthaginian, Iberian, Celtiberian, Basque, Lusitanian and Latin cultures.

These pieces come from public reference collections, cabinets and museums, and, eventually, from private collections. Likewise, practically all of the pieces sold in European and American auctions in recent decades are documented.

Museu Virtual de Quart de Poblet

The project of the virtual museum of Quart de Poblet brings together the collection of ethnological pieces included in the Local Heritage Fund and the files cataloged in the Municipal Photographic Fund.
In this way, anyone, whether they are a neighbor of the municipality or not, can access these collections.

Museu de Prehistoria de València (Museum of Prehistory of Valencia)

The Prehistoric Research Service of the Diputació de València and its Museum of Prehistory were created in 1927 as a scientific institution dedicated to conserving, researching and disseminating the rich archaeological heritage of Valencia. Since its inception, the SIP has been carrying out intense fieldwork in archaeological sites such as the Bastida dels Alcusses in Moixent, the Cova Negra in Xàtiva, the Cova del Parpalló in Gandia and the Tossal in Sant Miquel de Llíria. The materials obtained from these excavations soon constituted a collection whose scientific and patrimonial value made the SIP and its Museum one of the most important in Spain.

Collection of funds from MUVAET

Collection of online collections of the Museu Valencià d'Etnologia. Interviews, objects and photographs are shown as interrelated nodes and by geographic location

Vidal Valle Numismatic Collection

The objective of the project, financed by the Generalitat Valenciana, seeks to document and disseminate the Vidal Valle numismatic collection through this website. The unique set known by its owner as the "Kingdom of Valencia" constitutes an exceptional legacy of 1061 coins minted in different parts of the Valencian territory from Antiquity (4th century BC) to the years of the Civil War (1936-1939), that is to say monetary issues made over some 2,500 years. The collection also includes some paramonetal pieces, such as medals and tokens of high historical value, along with some non-Valencian series, among which the abundant examples of the Ikalesken Iberian mint stand out.

The Vidal Valle Ortí Valencian coin collection is an exceptional set made up of 1070 Valencian coins, which includes all the mints made in the Valencian territory for nearly 2500 years, together with medals, tokens and Ikalesken pieces. The pieces of this singular set are shown in this digital catalog, where a total of 754 typological variants are described.

Findsopts in Sardinia

This web shows the monetary findings coming from the area of Terralba municipality. This web catalogues, describes and illustrates all the coins meticulously. The studied pieces come from various sources, such as the archaeological excavations conducted in Truncu 'e Molas and Pauli Stincus, the collections of Gino Artudi and Sandro Perra (given to the Italian State), and also from the published findings.

Arxiu de la Memòria Històrica de Paiporta

The City Council of Paiporta aware of the importance of the recovery of the Historical Memory, as well as of the value of all the people who were immersed within the context of the Republic, Civil War and Postwar. That is why since 2016 a work team was created to carry out projects aimed at this purpose.

A global as well as inclusive project was outlined and configured, which has been taking shape over the years with activities and programs that have had the support of the Valencia Provincial Council and the Ministry of Justice, Public Administration, Reforms Democratic and Public Liberties.

We are aware that the people involved are very old and many have died, so the recovery of oral memory is an essential element to recover the direct witness, although in many cases they are second generation witnesses, that is, the children and daughters who lived through the Civil War conflict in the background, and to whom we thank for giving us their image to configure this file. Parallel to his image, all the files of the defendants from Paiporta have been recovered.

With all this information, the Paiporta Historical Memory file has been configured, which we hope will be useful, due to its configuration, both to users in general and to researchers.

Nuestra memoria (Our Memory)

Our Memory was born with the desire to become an audiovisual bank in which the personal experiences of witnesses and relatives related to the fight for public liberties in Spain are collected, from the outbreak of the Civil War to the Spanish transition to democracy.

This oral history archive project seeks, therefore, to help prevent the forgetting of everything that happened during the Franco dictatorship and aspires to become a plural repository of memories on the most recent history of all Valencians.

Museu de la paraula (Museum of the word)

L'Arxiu de la Memòria Oral Valenciana, Museu de la Paraula guards more than 300 digitized interviews, recorded in audiovisual format, transcribed and indexed.

The protagonists are people born before the Spanish civil war, privileged testimonies of the processes of sociocultural change developed in the Valencian territory during the 20th century. The Museu de la Paraula is presented as a system for the management, analysis and recovery of all the testimonies that the Museu Valencià d'Etnologia conserves in its collections.

The idea of creating the Archive of Valencian Oral Memories was born in the Valencià d'Etnologia Museum, of the Diputació de València, in 1999, conducting the first interview in 2002.

Linked to different Valencian institutions and to various departments of the University of Valencia, many people have collaborated in the project over the years.

Herri Memoria

Herri Memoria is an open audiovisual archive, which allows the incorporation of any life story collected in the Basque Country both in Basque and in Spanish, by different individuals or groups. It is a recognition of the people who told their story, thus helping to know the History of the Basque Country. It also constitutes an irreplaceable legacy for the relatives and loved ones of the informants, since through Herri Memoria they can visualize and share their life stories. It is also a valuable resource for learning or teaching about local history and as an oral source for research.


The Women's Information Centre 'Maite Albiz' started out in 1982 as an initiative of a working group of the Biscay Women's Assembly, concerned with archiving and documenting the ideas and activities of the feminist movement in the Basque Country. During its now protracted history, the Women's Information Centre has attempted to hold true to its purpose of disseminating cultural manifestations that incorporate a non-sexist worldview and of encouraging women to create or join associations.

Obrir portes, encendre cors

Socialization is the process by which individuals learn and internalize the values ​​and norms of the culture in which they live, ideally becoming socially competent people. This is a continuous process that only ends with the death of an individual, since throughout their lives people carry out new roles or roles that they have to learn. Among the agents of socialization, understood to be the formal and informal agencies that collaborate in the process, the family, the school, the peer groups and the media occupy a prominent place. Although it is appropriate to make a difference between being a member of the political community and being a member of society. With that purpose, we propose this project, aimed at women who participate in the Popular Universities of Valencia with whom, through a series of interviews, a Memory Archive and Observatory of equality will begin.

Obrir portes, encendre cors is a project that in this first edition seeks to generate an archive on equality, taking women as the center of action, with the purpose of contributing to the process of social transformation necessary to guarantee freedom of people, coexistence and respect for differences that make society a space of plurality and greater cultural wealth.
