Spaniards are reputed to be amongst Europes most voluble people. So why have they kept silent about the terrors of the Spanish Civil War and the rule of dictator Generalisimo Francisco Franco? The appearance - sixty years after that war ended - ofMoreSpaniards are reputed to be amongst Europes most voluble people. So why have they kept silent about the terrors of the Spanish Civil War and the rule of dictator Generalisimo Francisco Franco?

The appearance - sixty years after that war ended - of mass graves containing victims of Francos death squads has finally broken what Spaniards call the pact of forgetting. At this charged moment, Giles Tremlett embarked on a journey around Spain - and through Spanish history. Spaniards, he found, had tried to wipe both the Civil War and Franco from their memory. The graves were secretos a voces - whispered secrets everyone knew about but did not discuss. History, Tremlett discovered, was a tinder-box of disagreements for Spaniards.

Who caused the Civil War? Why do Basque terrorists kill? Why do Catalans hate Madrid? Did the islamist bombers who killed 190 people in 2004 dream of a return to Spains Moorish past? The ghosts of the past were everywhere.
