Spanish conservatives reacted angrily Saturday to a judge’s decision to order a probe into the disappearances of tens of thousands of people during the 1936-39 civil war and the ensuing dictatorship of General Francisco Franco. Garzon said Thursday he would investigate the disappearances of 114,266 people who disappeared between July 17, 1936 and December 1951.
A maverick crusader for universal jurisprudence, Garzon obtained a decade ago the arrest of Chile’s ex-dictator Augusto Pinochet. Garzon accused Pinochet of genocide, terrorism and torture, based on testimony from the Spanish families of people who had disappeared in Chile.

It was an emotional moment for me when I came upon the Civil War memorial stone on the Camino, since dad was a soldier and mom a nurse and went through so much in that war. Finding a note from a nephew to his uncle regarding his execution at the base of that stone along with flowers, mementos, special stones teared me up. It was an awful war (as they all are of course) and I do hope that anyone involved in any disappearances or torture be brought to trial. Of course there won't be many left.
