Paul Preston talks to Elena Moya

Segovia 2011, 
Paul Preston, one of the most important British Hispanists and a specialist in contemporary Spanish history, will talk about his new book The Spanish Holocaust, Inquisition and Extermination in 20th Century Spain with Spanish author and journalist Elena Moya, writer of Los olivos de Belchite. In his new work, Preston travels to the turmoil of the 1930’s and scrupulously details the darkest chapters of the Spanish civil war and Franco’s repression thereafter with great command of the sources used.
