minersFOR 79 years, the families of nine miners executed during the Spanish Civil War searched for the bodies of their loved ones, to no avail.

Until now, that is. The miners’ remains have been finally exhumed from a mass grave in Sevilla, where on July 19, 1936, the men were ambushed by pro-Franco forces while attempting to defend their city from the fascists.

The victims’ families have expressed relief at the opportunity to finally give their loved ones a proper burial.
