My grandfather remained silent until the day he died about his internment in several of Franco's concentration camps and his subsequent transfer to one of the regime's slave camps. When he died, I found a manuscript where he describes the journey he was forced to take and his experiences in each place. The Inherited Silence visits the settings of these horror stories in the present day to explore the silence that has conquered them and to confront the forgetfulness of the people that live there today, taking my grandfather's words with me along the way.
