Spanish Culture Behind Barbed Wire

Memory and Representation of the French Concentration Camps, 1939-1945

By the end of the Spanish Civil War in March of 1939, almost 500,000 Spaniards had fled Francisco Franco's newly established military dictatorship. More than 275,000 refugees in France were immediately interned in hastily constructed concentration camps, most of which were located along the open shorelines of France's southernmost beaches. This book chronicles the cultural memory of this war refugee population whose stories as camp inmates in the early 1940s remain largely unknown, unlike the wide dissemination of the literature and testimony of the survivors of Nazi death camps. The hidden history of France's seaside camps for Spanish Republicans spawned a rich legacy of cultural works that dramatically demonstrate how a displaced political community began to reconstitute itself from the ruins of war, literally from the sands of exile. Combining close textual analyses of memoirs, poetry, drama, and fiction with a carefully researched historical perspective, Spanish Culture behind Barbed Wire Investigates how the most significant literature of the early post-civil war exile period appropriated the concentration camp as a discursive vehicle.

In 2005 a little motel which had been converted to condos years back became the target of greedy developers in the a city located in one of the beaches in the state of Florida. The owners of those apartments were retired people who wanted to spend whatever was left of their lives living by the beach. They had worked hard to buy this property, but wedged between two luxury condos this little motel was not acceptable to some. The battle for these people to save their building against those that wanted to steal it away from them is what prompted the author to write all down as it was happening. You can read about the meetings, the frustrations, the complete lack of respect by most parties involved (including their own lawyers), it is all here. Perhaps not in an impeccable literary style, but definitely in the style of a man who only asked to have his day in court and was sadly denied. En 2005, un pequeo motel que haba sido convertido en condominios aos atrs se convirti en el blanco de ciertos constructores en una ciudad en una de las playas del estado de Florida. Los dueos de estos apartamentos eran personas retiradas que buscaban pasar el resto de sus das en un lugarcito frente al mar. Haban trabajado muy duro para poder comprar esta propiedad, pero al estar entre dos edificios de condominios de lujo, este motelito no era muy bien visto por algunos. La batalla de estas personas para salvar su edificio contra aquellos que se los queran robar fu lo que impuls al autor a escribir todo el proceso segn sucedan las cosas. Aqu pueden leer sobre las reuniones, las frustraciones, y la falta de respeto total de muchos de aquellos involucrados (incluyendo la abogada que los representaba). Quizs no est escrito en un estilo literario impecable, pero sin duda alguna, est en el estilo de un hombre que solo peda su da en corte y le fu tristemente negado.

With more than 230 million international tourists a year, the Mediterranean region is the largest tourist destination in the world. This book outlines that its economic importance is matched by its significance as a cultural and aesthetic phenomenon. Through a series of ethnographic insights into some of the key sites of mass Mediterranean tourism, it focuses on package tourists' experiences of the serial, banal and depthless spaces that are mushrooming along the coast and the enchantments, dissolutions and dreams that saturate them. Moving away from the notion of authentic places corrupted by mass tourism, the book shows how new forms and spaces are made and remade by the mobilities and performances of locals, workers and tourists. Finally, the book looks at the complex materialities of mass tourism and the many networks that make it possible.
