The testimony of the fogotten, 27 October 2012
Author: Sara Martin from Barcelona, Spain

Even though Spain has received hundreds of thousands of migrants, if not millions, from Africa and South America in the last two decades, there's very little exploration of the time when Spaniards themselves migrated massively to European nations like France, Great Britain, Switzerland and Germany. Now when the best educated youth are packing to migrate due to the long crisis is the right time to recall the experiences of the uneducated ones that left in the 1960s and 1970s in trains, packed like cattle. This documentary narrates the story of one of them, a woman who left Castille for Nuremberg. The film is a heart-breaking testimonial not only of her sad adventure but also of that of thousands of Spaniards ruthlessly exploited to support the German miracle. Absolutely worth watching particularly if you live in Spain and are one of those packing right now. Or one of those who pretend that under Franco all was well.
